About the Hatfield Fellows Program

The Continental Group Foundation established the Robert S. Hatfield Fund for Economic Education at Cornell University in 1980 to honor the then retiring chairman, president, and chief executive officer of the Continental Group Inc.

The fund supports the Hatfield Fellows Program, which serves as a major platform for the exchange of ideas between the academic and the corporate communities. The Hatfield Fellows Program is administered by the president of Cornell University, who each year invites one or more distinguished business leaders to meet with students and faculty members and to deliver a major address, the Hatfield Lecture. In 1981, Robert S. Hatfield ’37 inaugurated the Hatfield Fellows Program by serving as the first fellow.
