Postdocs were nominated and endorsed by letters from faculty, graduate and undergraduate students in one or more categories. A committee of three people who interact with postdocs regularly reviewed the nominations and made final decisions.

Meet Chantelle Cleary, Title IX coordinator

Chantelle ClearyChantelle Cleary wants to know the community she serves.

Since becoming Cornell’s Title IX coordinator in June, Cleary has added staff and reorganized her office. Now, at the start of her first academic semester at Cornell, she wants to engage directly with students, staff and faculty about their needs and to glean a deeper understanding of the campus culture and community.

Beginning Sept. 26, Cleary will hold “Title IX Talks,” which are essentially floating office hours at locations across campus. All members of the Cornell community – especially students – are invited to drop by.
