The FCS Diversity Committee (FCSDC) works to develop strategies to raise diversity awareness and support a culture of acceptance and inclusiveness within IPP.

Our Direction - Our diversity committee is directed by the guidelines laid out in the campus document Toward New Destinations (TND) – Institutional Diversity Planning created by the University Diversity Council. Under this charter, Colleges and units have been challenged to promote a working culture of inclusion and embrace the elements of diversity within the workplace.

This year the FCSDC will be focusing on the following three initiatives:

1.    Identify specific underrepresented job titles to develop and implement outreach plans with the intent to increase diversity of applicant pools.  

2.    Develop a diversity and inclusiveness training program that covers topics that are both relevant to our current culture, and are based on direct feedback from FCS staff.

3.    Explore opportunities within the surrounding counties and communities to promote Cornell careers within FCS and solicit Cornell FCS Staff volunteers who can engage with potential diverse candidates.

The FCSDC is excited to hear your ideas! If you would like to learn more about each of these initiatives, or be involved as they are implemented, please reach out to one of our committee members.

      Energy Smackdown: You look like a million kilowatt hours

      Can we reach a million?! Cornell is getting energized for its annual Energy Smackdown competition where students, staff, and faculty will compete for 6 weeks to cut back their energy use on campus – an important step towards achieving a carbon neutral campus by 2035. This year, we’re aiming to lose big – 1 million kWh over 6 weeks, that’s the equivalent of 140 homes’ energy use for a full year! So keep an eye out for our high impact energy savings tips for residential, office, and lab spaces. You can also keep track of our energy use (and renewable energy production) across campus year-round using our real-time metering data.
