The Department of Mathematics at Cornell University is known throughout the world for its distinguished faculty and stimulating mathematical atmosphere. The 43 tenured and tenure-track faculty represent a broad spectrum of current mathematical research, with a lively group of postdoctoral fellows and frequent research and teaching visitors. The graduate program includes over 70 graduate students from many different countries. The undergraduate program includes several math major programs and a math minor. A wide selection of courses are taught for all types of users of mathematics.

Cornell is a private endowed university and the federal land-grant institution of New York State, a member of the Ivy League, and a partner of the State University of New York. On the Ithaca campus, nearly 21,000 students are enrolled in seven undergraduate units and four graduate and professional units. Most of the 14,000 undergraduates will take at least one math course during their time at Cornell.

The Mathematics Department is part of the College of Arts and Sciences, a community of nearly 7,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 600 full-time faculty in departments and programs that encompass the humanities, sciences, mathematics, fine arts, and social sciences. Mathematics is located in Malott Hall, in the center of the Cornell campus, atop a hill between two spectacular gorges that run down to Cayuga Lake in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State.
