This chapter examines Cornell University's efforts to expand its global reach between 1995 and 2015; in the words of President Frank H. T. Rhodes, Cornell strove to become “the land grant university to the world.” From its earliest days, Cornell had been international in its aspiration and, to an extent, in its global outreach. Over time, the international content of many courses increased, the number of international students and scholars grew, and faculty with international roots and experiences were recruited. Cornell also built an excellent reputation in international studies and international engagement. This chapter shows how Cornell deepened its commitment to infuse international and comparative perspectives into teaching, learning, research, and engagement through a range of initiatives, including the establishment of the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, relations with India and China, the use of the Internet in going global (and enhancing revenue), and expansion of its presence in New York City.
