Cornell EEB just hosted our first annual Diversity Recruitment Weekend! Together with grad students in the NBB (Neurobiology and Behavior) department, we welcomed 22 interested students (and post-grads) to Corson-Mudd. The weekend was full of workshops on how to identify potential mentors and apply for graduate school, as well as meetings with faculty and post-docs. The enterprise was led by Sue Pierre and Cait MacDonald, and supported by the hard work of more than 20 graduate students who gave tours, developed workshops, hosted recruits, and organized all catering and event planning. Thanks to the Graduate School for your support, and we are excited to see a more diverse pool of applicants to our program next year!
