  • Diversity at CIA

    With the food industry representing cultures from around the globe, diversity and culinary arts are inseparable. This fusion of cuisines and the exchange of ideas and ingredients have helped to create a diverse environment at the Culinary Institute of America, which welcomes students and faculty from more than 30 countries to its campuses.

    This appreciation and respect for diversity can be traced back to CIA鈥檚 earliest days. Shortly after World War II, two women were chosen to lead the college. Frances Roth, a prosecuting attorney who was the first female member of the Connecticut Bar Association, took the helm as president. In addition, Katharine Angell (wife of then Yale University President James Rowland Angell) joined the school鈥檚 board and served as chairman from 1950 to 1966. During her tenure, she helped the fledgling 澳门莲花赌城quickly grow in size and reputation.

    Today, the 澳门莲花赌城Diversity Council鈥攚hich consists of students, faculty, and staff鈥攄evelops ideas and programs to increase pluralism on campus. Throughout all of our campuses, 澳门莲花赌城actively promotes diversity and inclusiveness with respect to ethnic and national origin, race, color, disability, religion, gender, socioeconomic background, age, and sexual orientation. We strive to provide a tolerant, civil, and inclusive environment that celebrates cultures from around the world. It is our goal and duty to create a welcoming learning community free of bias and discrimination that fosters respect and consideration. 澳门莲花赌城students develop their skills in an environment that encourages freedom of expression with responsibility and embraces all cultures while celebrating the uniqueness of each individual.
