The theme of our spring dinner is In Praise of Adequacy--Reducing the High Stress Culture of Perfectionism: A Mental Health Discussion. We will open our dinner discussion with remarks from our keynote speaker, Rachel Judith Weil, Professor of History who will draw upon her recent Chronicle of Higher Education essay, In Praise of Adequacy.


The Campus-Wide Breaking Bread Dinner is an initiative to bring together senior administrators, students, faculty, staff and other invited guests for facilitated conversations about timely and meaningful topics. The critical dialogue taking place at these dinners is skillfully facilitated by students involved with the Intergroup Dialogue Project. These talented students facilitate meaningful conversations that help Cornell community members work across differences and address issues of concern.


This event is hosted by the Office of the Dean of Students, the Graduate School Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement (OISE), the Department of Inclusion and Workforce Diversity, and the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, which are directed by the University Diversity Officers.
