Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Celebrating LGBTQIA+ Pride Month

We celebrate and recognize our LGBTQIA+ community members, and members throughout the world, for their countless efforts and societal contributions. Pride Month was initially established in the United States to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of June 1969, events that served as a catalyst for a movement that continues today.

SUNY Cobleskill is a campus characterized by empathy, inclusivity, respect, personal growth, integrity, and a collaborative spirit fostering well-being and sustainable practices. Our strength is in our unity as One Coby, a community of diverse identities that give value and a rich context to the human experience.

As we celebrate this month, we welcome a new flag banner that will proudly be displayed among our global nations and Native American flag banners that adorn our campus. The Pride flag banner will stand near Bouck Hall, honoring the LGBTQIA+ community and associated gender identities.

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.
