"To be a university president is the best job in the United States"

Abstract:
Yong Tang: How do you define Cornell's position among the Ivy League?

Skorton: It depends upon the fields. Not every university can be the best in every field. We have focused this university traditionally in a variety of fields. For example, life sciences, medicine, agriculture, veterinary medicine are very strong at Cornell. Physical science and engineering are extremely strong. One strategy is to maintain strength in those areas where you are already recognized. Another is to find areas for international exchange where we have a skill or quality that is complemented by other scholars from other institutions.

For instance, we have cooperated with Tsinghua University in China in Nanotechnology. The two universities are working to do things together that neither one would do alone as well. The humanities have been traditionally very strong at Cornell, and we are growing in excellence in the social sciences.
