The Molecular Biophysics Training Grant program is committed to diversity and welcomes a broad candidate pool. Here we highlight important University resources that are available to students, including:
- The Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement (OISE) Ambassadors — This program connects students of diversity or with disabilities to one another. They also channel diversity/disability students to relevant departments, send these students to conferences for recruitment, and work with various departments during recruiting weekends.
- Student Disability Services — This office determines eligibility for disability services, facilitates necessary accommodations, and spearheads campus wide education on disability issues. They maintain resources such as an Access Media Resource Center and coordinate real-time closed caption lecture services. In addition, there is a specific Disability Representative within each College as well as Admissions, Physical Education, Campus Life, Transportation, and the University Library System.
- Empathy, Assistance, and Referral System (EARS) — A free student run, peer counseling organization. They also lead workshops at Cornell and throughout the local community.
- Cornell's Military Community Resources — A new website that provides a single portal for military veterans at Cornell. The site contains extensive information including Cornell and local wellness resources.
- The Diversity and Inclusion Council — This program was initiated by the Department and Physics to ensure a safe and supportive work environment for all. The Council directly engages in training and educations to meet this goal.
