1. University Diversity Goals
The structure below provides the broader context of University Diversity
Goals, which represent the full reach of Cornell’s commitment to diversity.
Each item in the Menu of Annual Initiatives identifies a specifically focused
means of advancing one of these broader University Diversity Goals. The
Diversity Goals Summary that follows repeats—in a condensed matrix
format—these University Diversity Goals.
Core Diversity Principles
The University Diversity Goals are defined according to the four Core
Diversity Principles—COMPOSITION, ENGAGEMENT, INCLUSION, and
ACHIEVEMENT:
composition refers to the demographic make-up of the unit or
institution;
engagement reflects personal, social, and professional commitment
to institutional goals and activities;
inclusion comprises climate and interpersonal relations; and
achievement reflects levels of attainment for underrepresented
individuals or groups.
Constituency Areas
Cornell’s diversity goals are organized according to the seven constituency
areas:
undergraduate students;
graduate and professional students;
postdocs and academic professionals (those with terminal degrees
who have responsibilities in research, teaching, or the libraries, but
are not included in the tenure-track ranks);
tenure-track faculty (including tenured and non-tenured faculty);
