SIPS was launched by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in 2014 to provide a unifying framework for plant, soil, and agricultural research at Cornell. The five sections are associated with distinct disciplines, graduate fields, and knowledge bases, but are connected by urgent challenges and revolutionary tools relevant to all plant scientists.

Land Acknowledgment

Cornell University is located on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' (the Cayuga Nation). The Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' are members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign Nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land. The Confederacy precedes the establishment of Cornell University, New York State, and the United States of America.  We acknowledge the painful history of Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' dispossession, and honor the ongoing connection of Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' people, past and present, to these lands and waters.
