United by a Shared Purpose

As Cornell University seeks to raise $5 billion through The Greatest Good Campaign, the SC Johnson College of Business will raise $500 million. With a focus on increasing scholarships for students, enhancing our capacity to attract and support world-class faculty in their teaching and research, and funding our commitment to innovative academic and co-curricular programming, we will seek to match philanthropic interests to our shared priorities. In raising over $51 million in direct support of our schools, we will strengthen the impact of our unique and collective contributions to business education. As a college, our strategy and ambition are aligned; and as three distinct schools, our partnership supports our shared destiny.

Together, we will assure that Cornell remains an educational beacon, a source of solutions, and a bridge to the world.
