Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Cornell Engineering’s deep commitment to fostering a community that celebrates diversity, promotes equity, and intentionally builds an inclusive culture is a point of departure that will enable the realization of the following specific objectives:

  • Continue to recruit, support, and graduate a highly diverse undergraduate student body
  • Create bridge programs to increase diversity among domestic graduate students
  • Hire strategically to double the number of underrepresented minority faculty over the next decade and to increase the gender diversity of our faculty to match the diversity of graduate students in COE fields
  • Actively promote inclusion and belonging as core values throughout the college community.
