Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement
The Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement (OISE) supports an inclusive and welcoming environment for all graduate students and postdocs. OISE promotes a climate of diversity, engagement, and achievement, which are integral components of graduate education.
The Graduate School’s Recruitment Office is committed to promoting graduate study at Cornell. Our staff serves as the liaison to all prospective students, especially those from diverse backgrounds and populations traditionally underrepresented in graduate education.

Engagement in Diversity
OISE provides specific professional development programs to help students achieve success at Cornell and in their future.The Graduate Students Mentoring Undergraduates (GSMU) and Bouchet Honor Society are just a few examples.
Graduate Diversity Council
The Graduate Diversity Council (GDC), comprised of graduate students as well as faculty members, meets regularly throughout the academic year to identify issues, needs, and concerns related to promoting diversity and inclusion among graduate students and to plan diversity-related events and opportunities designed to foster these principles among the Cornell graduate community.
Funding and Resources
Cornell University provides a wide range of services and resources to help students reach their academic goals. Students can find academic and social support through Cornell’s many student organizations.
Toward New Destinations
In fall 2011, the University Diversity Council was restructured. The University Diversity Council has developed a major and transformative institutional diversity planning initiative, "Toward New Destinations" (TND).
