With this plan, we aim to chart a course for success in the early years of the Cornell Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy. We are committed to:

Educating future leaders who can improve societal well-being
Serving as a dynamic hub for policy engagement on the Cornell campus

We will advance these strategic priorities over the next five years in a manner that:
