As a direct result of Cornell University’s 2007 economic impact study, developed by Appleseed, I have been better able to articulate the university’s complex and diverse role in the economies of the town, the county, the region, and New York State. In addition, the valuable information generated by the Appleseed report has been utilized by our senior administration, the Board of Trustees, and governmental representatives to assess how effectively Cornell uses its resources to carry out its missions of teaching, research and public service.
