As Cornellians, we all have a responsibility to create a better world. Working directly through educational programs, research, and cross-cultural dialogue, we work to build a strong and diverse Cornell community with an emphasis on equity and inclusion.
By supporting any of these funds, you can aid in the charge to create a community where everyone has the same opportunities to grow, learn, and thrive:
Cornell University leads the way in important research through the Center for the Study of Inequality (CSI). The center delves into evidence-based social and economic inequality research, striving to identify patterns and causes. Your support will allow undergraduate and graduate students at the center to continue sharing their ideas with each other, and with the public—sparking real change.
Cornell’s Intergroup Dialogue Project works with departments and programs university-wide to start difficult conversations. Their mission? To facilitate dialogue across differences. Your gifts support this peer-to-peer outreach and programming, allowing more Cornellians to get involved in workshops, classes, and training.
The Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives (OADI) supports Cornell students of all backgrounds, including low-income students, first-generation students, under-represented students of color. Programs and events through OADI provide students with the support they need to complete their degrees and meet their personal goals. Your gifts make this possible.
Multicultural Student Leadership & Empowerment (MSL&E) programs offer co-curricular learning and foster an inclusive campus environment. With a commitment to increasing cross-cultural awareness and competency, MSL&E supports students and more than 150 student organizations in their efforts to offer a variety of programs. These initiatives explore shared and unique experiences, histories, and heritages in our diverse community.
