The Cornell Institute for Healthy Futures was established in 2015 as a cross-campus collaboration between the School of Hotel Administration and the College of Human Ecology. The institute is the first academic center in the country to combine hospitality, environmental design, and health policy and management into a broad-based platform to improve service in healthcare, wellness, and senior living.

The institute's mission is to provide a multi-disciplinary platform for integrating hospitality, health management/policy, and design thinking to enhance service excellence in healthcare, wellness, senior living and related industries. To achieve this goal, the institute develops and supports multidisciplinary educational programs, sponsors and disseminates research, and hosts conferences, roundtables, meetings, and practicum projects, allowing academic scholars, students, and industry professionals and leaders to share ideas and discuss topics of mutual interest.
