Thriving at Cornell: Supporting Students of Color

The SAS Task Force for the Retention of Black Men, with support from the SAS Diversity Council, presented “Thriving at Cornell: Supporting Students of Color” on Monday, October 27, 2014.

The conference was meant to initiate an ongoing campus-wide conversation about helping students of color succeed at Cornell. Over 75 members of the Cornell community participated in the conference, enabling them to broaden their awareness of current initiatives, consider new opportunities to support students, and to nurture existing and launch new collaborations.
