Founded in 2000, Chesterton House is a collaborative effort among many members of the Cornell and Ithaca communities–including students, pastors, professors, and campus ministry workers. Its mission is to facilitate discovery of the intellectual riches of the historic Christian faith, thereby empowering more faithful Christian living. Chesterton House does this by providing residential facilities for young men and women, sponsoring large public lectures by leading Christian scholars, hosting small group discussions on wide-ranging topics, maintaining a resource room of the best Christian scholarship, and providing speakers for fellowship meetings and retreats.

Cornell aspires to be the exemplary comprehensive research university for the 21st century on the basis of our distinctive status as a private university with a formal public mission. Faculty, staff, and students will thrive at Cornell because of its unparalleled combination of quality and breadth; its high standards; its open, collaborative, and innovative culture; the opportunities provided by beautiful, vibrant rural and urban campuses; and programs that extend throughout the state of New York and across the globe.
