Welcome to Cornell University, Campus Life [PDF]

GORGE SAFETY: Cornell University has come out with this very powerful and very sad video on gorge safety. You may be tempted to take a quick dip on a hot day, but do NOT swim in the no-swimming areas. Period. Thank you for staying safe!!
http://www.cornell.edu/video/gorge-safety-information


Cornell also has a helpful website listing all the safe places to swim!

Summer Research Inclusivity Statement
In order to learn, we must be open to the views of people different from ourselves. During the time we share together over the summer, please honor the uniqueness of your fellow researchers, no matter their background, and appreciate the opportunity we have to learn from one another. In our structured and unstructured discussions, we will have many opportunities to explore some challenging, high-stakes issues and increase our understandings of different perspectives. These perspectives are informed by race, ethnicity, national origin, migratory status, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, and disability. Our conversations may not always be easy; sometimes we will make mistakes in our speaking and our listening; sometimes we will need patience or courage or imagination or any number of qualities in combination to engage our texts, our colleagues, and our own ideas and experiences. Always we will need respect for others.

Thus, an important aim of our summer program will be for us to acknowledge our own biases by having the difficult conversations that arise around issues of social justice in order to expand and deepen our understanding of multiple perspectives – whatever our backgrounds, experiences, or positions.


"If we knew what we were doing, we wouldn't call it research." Albert Einstein
