Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Roper Center for Public Opinion Research is dedicated to ensuring equitable access to high-quality public opinion for our members and user community, fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace for our colleagues, and cultivating and sustaining relationships with our data providers and research partners in order to broaden our reach and deepen our understanding of the communities we serve.


Cornell offers resources to everyone in our community for advancing diversity, equity and inclusion.  We are also a part of the Belonging At Cornell initiative, committed to fairness in our hiring efforts, scholarship programs and membership activities. Our commitment to diversity is woven into the very fabric of Roper Center, from our leadership to our student employees. Together, we’re making strides toward a more inclusive society where everyone’s rights are protected, and everyone’s voice is heard.

Land Acknowledgement

Cornell University is located on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ (the Cayuga Nation). The Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ are members of the Hodinǫ̱hsǫ́:nih (Haudenosaunee) Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land. The confederacy precedes the establishment of Cornell University, New York state and the United States of America. We acknowledge the painful history of Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ dispossession, and honor the ongoing connection of Gayogo̱hó:nǫɁ people, past and present, to these lands and waters.
