Summary:
"With a stated objective that "any person can find instruction in any study," Cornell exemplifies academic diversity. The institution has a long tradition of excellence in writing and is home to one of the oldest academic writing programs. At the core of Cornell's approach is the idea that writing well is a concern that is not limited to one department or field, but is best approached in a multidisciplinary way.
