Cornell University Diversity & Inclusion: Links to various offices and programs for diversity resources for various Cornell populations including some listed below:

  • Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives (OADI): is focused on undergraduate inclusion and achievement across the Cornell campus so students of all backgrounds excel at their academic goals. OADI programs especially support low-income students, those who are the first in their families to achieve a college degree, and under-represented students of color.
  • Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement (OISE): works to advance a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all graduate students and postdoctoral scholars, but especially for those from backgrounds historically underrepresented in graduate education and the academy.
  • Office of Faculty Development and Diversity (OFDD): The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity works with deans and department chairs to increase faculty diversity, providing guidance in setting realistic diversity goals, training search committees, broadening faculty applicant pools, increasing retention of underrepresented groups, and providing faculty development and advancement opportunities.
  • Faculty Institute for Diversity: The goal of Cornell’s Faculty Institute for Diversity is to bring faculty together to engage in complex discussions about aspects of diversity, to create a network of teachers and scholars who can serve as a resource to one another on matters of diversity and education, and to incorporate diversity elements into new or revised courses.
  • Cornell University Inclusive Excellence Academy (IEA): With a focus on the development of multicultural fluency, Cornell University’s Inclusive Excellence Academy, launched in August 2013, offers programs designed to advance an inclusive educational environment and workplace.
  • Human Resources, Our Culture & Diversity: Learn about Cornell’s policies and programs that support diversity and inclusion in our workplace, including the University Diversity Council, equal opportunity and affirmative action programs, and instructions and resources for reporting harassment, discrimination, and bias.

Colleague Network Groups: The university sponsors Colleague Network Groups (CNGs) as a way for traditionally underrepresented minorities and their allies to find support, both at Cornell and beyond. The CNGs enhance our community culture by providing engaging programs for Cornell faculty and staff.  

Building a Culture of Respect: Link to Cornell’s online training regarding sexual assault/violence, domestic violence, dating violence (also known as intimate partner violence), and stalking prevention and response. "Building a Culture of Respect" addresses how to respond should faculty or staff learn a member of our community has experienced any type of sexual violence or stalking. It also lets faculty and staff know how to file a complaint.

Belonging at Cornell: Belonging at Cornell is about fostering respect and appreciation for difference, having a shared purpose and being a part of a community, while simultaneously being valued and appreciated for the uniqueness that each person brings to the community.
