A truly diverse community is the foundation for the thoughtful and in-depth exchange of ideas. It’s a place where cross-cultural skills are developed and enacted among diverse campus constituencies, with campus partners, and within the classroom and workplace. And it’s an opportunity for everyone to contribute to our intellectual community all that is distinctive and unique about their individual perspectives while expanding horizons, blazing new trails, pursuing new knowledge, and sharing what they have to offer.
Your sons and daughters will experience the rich variations in intellectual approaches, individual backgrounds, cultural nuances, and demographics (race, religion, class, gender, sexual orientation) that make our community a wonderfully diverse place to study, live, and grow. As students settle in and eventually hit their stride, they will have numerous opportunities to embrace the vibrancy, energy, and richness of diverse experiences that are central to a Cornell education.
We support the holistic development of students, both within and beyond the classroom, and to that end, a plethora of resources and supportive services are in place to ensure that all students can maximize their time on the Hill to the best of their ability.
