You Belong!

There are several ways for you to engage in the Office of Diversity Programs in Engineering's (DPE) programs and contribute to the diverse Cornell Engineering community.

During the fall 2020 semester, all DPE staff will be working remotely, but our programs and services will continue to be offered virtually.

Choose how you want to get in involved!
