This chapter presents how Cornell University Medical College (CUMC) was reborn as the Weill Cornell Medical College. A generous donation from Sanford Weill, chair of the board of overseers, and his wife, Joan, led to the renaming of the medical school in 1998 and the completion of its first strategic plan. The road to the Weill gift began when CUMC integrated its strategic planning and fundraising efforts for the first time. In 1990, Cornell University launched a five-year Campaign for Cornell—the New Horizons for Medicine campaign. At the same time, a strategic plan for the medical college was being developed, the Strategic Plan for Research, which became the fundraising template for the medical college's section of the campaign. Philanthropy also became increasingly important to Cornell as it tried to build up its academic programs and faculty.
