In just a decade, the recently completed Phase I of Cornell Tech has become a fully-fledged, purpose-built campus for the digital age that offers technology, business, law, and design education and research. Located on Roosevelt Island, Manhattan in the middle of the East River, it has quickly become one of the most innovatively sustainable and architecturally significant new campuses. On its ten-year anniversary, this symposium will explore how the planning and design of Cornell Tech expressly creates a catalytic environment to produce visionary ideas and technologies that reinvent the way we live.

Learning Outcomes:

    1. Discuss the planning and implementation of the Cornell Tech campus as a novel academic and economic development initiative.
    2. Review Cornell Tech’s success in developing a new cohort of innovative entrepreneurs.
    3. Examine how the campus’s high-tech learning environments inspire and energize innovation for its students and the economy.
    4. Identify the ways in which Cornell Tech’s campus planning and design supports entrepreneurship and technologically-advanced education.
