Student Research by the Numbers
Cornell’s mission is to discover, preserve, and disseminate knowledge; produce creative work; and promote a culture of broad inquiry throughout and beyond the Cornell community.
Find our how we’re doing by the numbers:
- >4000 Cornell students earned credit each semester for their research efforts in 2019-2020
- 27% of Cornell undergraduates earned credit for participating in research during the course of their study at Cornell during the 2019-2020 academic year
- The typical senior science major spends 15-20 hours each week in the lab while participating in a faculty-led research project
- Humanities majors working on research read an average of 3-5 books each week of the semester
