The Presidential Advisors on Diversity & Equity (PADE) provides grants that support the Belonging at Cornell (BaC) framework. Belonging at Cornell is designed to continue the progress towards making Cornell a more diverse and inclusive environment. Its mission is to focus our collective efforts on creating a campus community where individuals from diverse backgrounds and life experiences can both contribute and thrive. Projects that promise to impact these objectives are invited to participate in the selection process.
The grant program, originally started in 2020, was directed to faculty and staff. New this year, a pilot program for graduate and professional students is in place.
