The Chronicle of Higher Education has the details.

Mr. McBride told the Sun that he had shared the document because the university community “needed to be involved before such a drastic decision was going to be made that was going to change the mission of the university from ‘any person, any study’ to any rich person.” The reference is to the university’s motto — “I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study” — formulated in 1868 by Ezra Cornell, its founder.
