This news item from 'Scopes Summer 2018 is about: Diversity and inclusion: two words used frequently in organizational discussions, mission statements and national dialogues around policy and politics. With so much mention, the words can run the risk of losing meaning. Yet they represent values that have shaped Cornell — an institution where “any person can find instruction in any study.” The College of Veterinary Medicine has aimed for that vision — albeit with failings and flaws along the way — throughout its history. Today, the college continues to strive for a leadership role in diversity and acceptance — a complex undertaking considering its placement in a region and industry that are both considerably non-diverse. However, for Lorin Warnick, D.V.M., Ph.D. ’94, the Austin O. Hooey Dean of Veterinary Medicine, and the rest of the college community, it’s a challenge worth fighting for.
