The Department of Inclusion and Belonging provides institutional leadership toward promoting a campus environment in which we encourage full access to and participation of all members of the Cornell community. We design and deliver innovative strategies, programs, consultations, and opportunities to help our workplace achieve equity, inclusion, and belonging in our systems, structures, and culture.
Information about Cornell’s diversity recruitment and retention programs and resources, including training and networking opportunities to support communities of color, disabilities, LGBT, military veterans, women, and religions.
Cornell’s Colleague Network Groups are university-sponsored employee resource groups for diverse populations, including racial/ethnic minorities, differently abled, young professionals, LGBT, and veterans, and allies of those groups. The groups provide programs that enhance the university culture by fully engaging all our faculty and staff. Each group advocates for a specific demographic within the Cornell faculty and staff community—to aid in recruitment and retention efforts, as well as improve the climate for the community as a whole.
