Field Note

According to statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Education in 2019, nearly 75 percent of all animal science graduates from U.S. colleges and universities were white. Cornell’s Minority Animal Science Students (MASS) club aims to address this disparity by encouraging the success of underrepresented minority students inside and outside the classroom. Started in 2016, MASS is led by student president Brandon Garcia ’23 and faculty adviser Kristan Foster Reed, assistant professor in Cornell CALS Department of Animal Science. We connected with Garcia, Reed and former board member Amanda Cheung ’21 to learn more about the club and its significance to the department.
