Ezra Cornell and Andrew Dickson White founded the "Big Red" in 1865 to provide education for all, irrespective of race or religion. That ideal still underpins life and learning for around 20,000 students and 6,000 faculty at today's private Ivy League academy, which offers about 4,000 courses in 11 undergraduate and professional schools.
