The staff who lead and coordinate IDP’s programs and courses.
IDP Leadership Team
Adi Grabiner-Keinan, Ph.D.
Executive Director for Undergraduate Diversity Education
Director, Intergroup Dialogue Project
Adi joined IDP in 2015 as the Program Director. She became the Executive Director for Undergraduate Diversity Education in June 2019. Working closely with Cornell’s academic units and leadership, Adi develops and leads campus-wide educational opportunities focusing on four key development areas: human connection, social identity, intergroup communication, and strategic change. By creating optimal conditions for multi-phase and multi-party processes for faculty, students, and student-facing staff, she promotes the expansion of academic DEI education on campus in a direction that supports the evolving needs of the University. As part of her role, Adi provides strategic guidance to Cornell’s academic leadership on the development, implementation, and assessment of frameworks, programs aiming to raise awareness about DEI issues, support behavioral change at personal and interpersonal levels, and influence institutional climate.
