Cornell University has launched a new website devoted to diversity and inclusion. The new website includes a discussion on the history of the university’s diversity efforts, frequently asked questions on diversity matters, and provides demographic statistics on students, faculty, and the entire university community. The new online effort includes sections on diversity initiatives in Cornell’s colleges, schools, and administrative units, a listing of awards related to diversity received by people and units at Cornell, and places to go to gain more help or assistance on diversity matters. A “Finding My Community” section offers personal stories of people at Cornell as well as a list of groups that deal with matters of diversity, such as the Africana Studies and Research Center.
