Each Hotelie plays a critical role in our prominent network of hospitality leaders who serve humanity, embrace diversity, and foster community.
The School of Hotel Administration is leading the world in teaching the business of hospitality. Our community of students, faculty, staff and alumni embodies the core values of hospitality each and every day. We embrace diversity of all kinds and strive to create and support inclusivity for all. The capacity to partake in difficult dialogues and to push boundaries set Hotelies apart and enables them to make powerful, positive contributions to our school, industry, and society, on both an individual and collective basis.
The Hotel School’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, located in the Office of Student Services in Statler Hall, provides students with a comprehensive support system as part of a fully welcoming community. We provide an infrastructure of support to students throughout their academic and social experiences at the Hotel and Cornell. Our efforts are supported by the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business’s diversity and inclusion mission to create an engaged community.
At the School of Hotel Administration, we focus our diversity and inclusion programming within three pillars: inclusion, engagement, and community.
Our programming is holistically aimed at building a welcoming and warm environment of support and success for all our students: one that provides a visible, inspiring, and mentor-supported career path ahead. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni, are all important contributors to our community. All have access to, and participate in, our many offerings throughout the year. Although our community’s hub resides within the walls of Statler Hall, our connections and influence are far reaching—our world-renowned alumni and faculty promote inclusivity, engagement, and community while driving diversity of thought in the global hospitality industry.
At the School of Hotel Administration, we are a learning community that embodies and symbolizes hospitality for all! We are so excited to welcome you to our Hotelie home.
