Cornell University was conceived by its founders in 1865 as a university where "any person" could find instruction in "any study." The Johnson School embodies this 141-year-old vision of inclusiveness in several ways:
• The Johnson School was the first top-tier business school to create an office dedicated to increasing diversity and promoting inclusiveness among its student body.
• The school’s five-year plan identifies increasing diversity at the school and in the business community as one of its five major objectives.
• The office of diversity and inclusion, staffed by dedicated professionals, exists to execute the school’s goals and visions for a more diverse business community nationwide.
