Cornell AAP announces new hires advancing collaborative scholarship and creative practice in social justice and equity

This fall, Cornell's College of Architecture, Art, and Planning (AAP) welcomes faculty to many new positions including an Associate Dean for Diversity and Equity; a social-justice-focused cohort of five, including one Provost New Faculty Fellow, that spans the architecture, art, and planning disciplines; and two provost-supported radical collaboration (CIVIC) positions that will identify and expand upon generative points of intersection in the arts and humanities at AAP and across the university.

Additionally, two inaugural Strauch Fellowships were awarded to early-career scholars and practitioners whose work advances inclusion and equity in architecture and city and regional planning.

"We are thrilled to welcome an extraordinary group of new faculty and fellows whose critical scholarship and creative practices, rigorous research, and lines of inquiry advance equity and justice across our disciplines," says AAP Dean J. Meejin Yoon.
