Over 80 students recognized at pinning ceremony

The Graduate School welcomed over 80 new Dean’s Scholars on Nov. 1 at an event to honor recipients of competitive, diversity-focused fellowships.

Each scholar received a pin with a gold center containing the Cornell seal, representing the scholars’ achievement, surrounded by an outer ring of silver, representing their persistence.

“You are part of the exciting change we want to see at Cornell. Each of you has demonstrated a commitment to academic excellence and to advancing aspects of diversity, access, equity, inclusion and belonging,” said Kathryn J. Boor, dean of the Graduate School and vice provost for graduate education, in a recorded address to the new scholars. “I believe each of you will achieve great things while at Cornell and beyond.”

Newly pinned students join a community of over 370 current Dean’s Scholars, providing them with the opportunity to establish and maintain connections across graduate fields by engaging in professional and community development events offered through the Graduate School.
