In this new role, Dr. Renee will work closely with the Dean of Students, Dr. Vijay Pendakur, on shaping a student climate at Cornell that is engaged, equity-minded, and committed to free speech. Dr. Renee will also continue her Breaking Bread programming series, while identifying new opportunities for inter-group exchange and dialogue across difference. Please come visit Dr. Renee at her new office in 401 Willard Straight Hall, and her satellite office in 221 RPCC!
