$35 million science project announced

Numerous media outlets covered Cornell College’s announcement of its $35 million science facilities construction project and largest outright cash gift in its history. The project, to be funded completely through philanthropy, is moving forward at an accelerated pace due to a leadership gift of $20 million by alumna Jean Russell ’65 to honor her Cornell experience and her father’s legacy.
