Mission

To ensure all members of the Department of Physics are treated with Dignity, Equality and Respect.  The department strives and is committed to ensuring all of its faculty, staff, Post-Doctoral, graduate and undergraduate students work and study in a professional environment free from all prohibited discrimination, protected-status harassment, sexual assault/violence, and bias activity, in particular when such actions are directed at a member or group of the Cornell community because of that individual’s or group’s actual or perceived age, color, creed, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, military or veteran status, or any combination of these or related factors.  The Department’s Diversity and Inclusion Policies will be in strict adherence to University Policy, State and Federal Law.  The department will strive to educate all of its members toward this vision.

Find your community, learn where to find help, or locate official policies.  Check out the many department and university Diversity and Inclusion Resources.
