Cornell Bowers CIS

Cornell University undertook a bold experiment in 1999 when it created its combined Faculty of Computing and Information Science (“CIS”) as an interdisciplinary unit that would ultimately see its people, programs, and projects embedded throughout the university.  A transformative gift from Ann S. Bowers ’59 named the college in 2020 and launched a new era of computing, information, and data sciences at Cornell. With the goal to improve the world by creating an equitable, sustainable future for all, researchers at Cornell Bowers CIS work at the interface where computing and information technology transforms science and policy across engineering, medicine, science, society, and the arts.
