High-quality education, research and public engagement are the cornerstones of the College of Human Ecology and its academic departments, which include: human development, design and environmental analysis, nutritional sciences, policy analysis and management, and fiber science and apparel design. The College also houses the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs and the Sloan Program in Health Administration. We prioritize innovative collaboration and are fueled by a powerful, interdisciplinary and applied (translational) approach. The College of Human Ecology is one of four contract colleges at Cornell.
