EDUC 2610 is open to all Cornell undergraduate students. Each section comprises 10 -16 undergraduate participants and two trained peer facilitators and focuses on one of several social identities – race/ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, (dis)ability, sexual orientation or nationality. Each class meets once a week for three hours. To maximize learning and the opportunity for meaningful intergroup dialogue, sections are created to ensure a mixed and balanced representation of views, experiences, and identities. For example, a sexual orientation dialogue will be half heterosexual/straight students and half LGBTQ+ students. Decisions about which topics are offered in a given semester are based on the social identities of students enrolled that semester. For this reason, it is necessary for us to collect information about our students’ social identities. We do this via our Placement Form.
You do not need to disclose an identity if you are not comfortable doing so, but you do need to complete the Placement Form in order to obtain or maintain enrollment status in the course.
Please note, while we use your self-reported social identities to craft dynamic and diverse sections, this information has no impact on enrollment in this course.
There are two parts to enrolling in EDUC 2610: enrolling in Student Center and completing the Placement Form.
EDUC 2610 is open to all Cornell undergraduates during pre-enroll.
While we use the information from enrolled students’ placement forms to craft dynamic and diverse sections, this information has no impact on whether a student is able to enroll in the course.
If you are not able to enroll during pre-enroll, this is because there are a set number of seats reserved for seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshmen. Although a section may appear to be open on Student Center, if you are receiving an error message when you try to enroll, it is because there are no more seats available based on your class year.
Add/drop: If you wish to add the course during add/drop, you need to obtain department consent. To request consent, you need to complete a placement form in order to generate a waitlist entry.
Waitlist: If you are not able to enroll in EDUC 2610 during the pre-enrollment period, you should still complete a Placement Form. When you complete a Placement Form, you will automatically be added to the waitlist. Once the pre-enrollment period is over, we begin forming sections and determining topics based on information we receive from all students enrolled in the course. If there are still spaces available, we will begin to reach out to students on the waitlist to offer them a seat. Once the add/drop period starts, some students may drop the course or attempt to switch to a different section. This may free up additional seats for those on the waitlist. We will contact you by email if a space opens up for you. You do not need to do anything in addition to submitting a Placement Form.
