Last semester Cornell was witness to a potential hate crime in Collegetown, continued overzealous behavior by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a display of rank anti-Semitism and the abrupt end to the once-promising political career of a graduate of Cornell in a precursor to the #MeToo movement. We also witnessed the grand opening of a state-of-the-art technology campus in New York City, the completion of a new and improved Cornell Health center, demonstrations of solidarity in the form of occupations, petitions and marches, and the welcoming of displaced students to Cornell from the Universidad de Puerto Rico. As spring semester begins, all eyes will be on the Greek system as Tri-Council implements phase 3 of its “Diversity and Inclusion Plan.” The reformed New Member Orientation program and Tri-Council’s continued conversations with leaders from a multitude of campus communities are the first steps in correcting serious flaws in fraternity and sorority culture. We applaud and support Tri-Council’s proposal for all IFC and MGLC chapters to instate a diversity and inclusion chair on their respective executive boards. At a time when universities across the country are cracking down on Greek life, the newly-elected leaders of IFC, Panhellenic Council and MGLC have the opportunity to make Cornell’s system a model for the rest of the nation, and we hope they make the best of it.
