Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Celebrating the Lunar New Year

In 2023, we welcome the Year of the Rabbit. Though often referred to as the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year, this international holiday is celebrated in many Asian countries. Overall, about 1.5 billion people worldwide will take part in the new year festivities. The Year of the Rabbit, which occurs once every 12 years with the last one in 2011, will last until the first new moon of next year. 

SUNY Cobleskill joins all celebrants of the Lunar New Year, on campus and across the world, in the shared hope for good health, prosperity, and the strengthening of bonds between friends and family in the coming year.


Creating a Welcoming and Supportive Community

SUNY Cobleskill is committed to creating a community of practice that fosters the exchange of ideas in a respectful and non-threatening way, and creates better understanding, awareness, and opportunities to learn from each other.

We reject bigotry, hateful speech, oppression, harassment, bullying, and all forms of injustice.

We believe in the inherent dignity of each person.  We value fairness, civility, and kindness.  We listen to, encourage, and support each other.  We seek to instill in our faculty, staff and students a lifelong appreciation for the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion so that we can create a better world.
