Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station is committed to promoting diversity in all aspects of operations, facilities and research under its purview. Diversity encompasses the whole of human experience and includes race, gender, ethnicity, physical ability, nationality, age, religion, sexual orientation, economic status, political beliefs and veteran status. These important attributes reflect the complexity of our nation, which we strive to serve. We recognize and value the considerable workplace and societal benefits emanating from diversity in a multicultural world.

Cornell has a long tradition of supporting a diverse and inclusive educational environment, which extends to our workforce. We’re an employer and educator recognized for valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
