QUICK FACTS

OADI as "wadi"

We pronounce OADI as "wadi", which is an Arabic/Swahili word that refers to a cool protected passage route/valley through a desert, often formed by a seasonal river.

The Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives-OADI-is focused on inclusion and achievement across the Cornell campus so students of all backgrounds excel at their academic goals. OADI programs especially support low-income students, those who are the first in their families to achieve a college degree, and under-represented students of color.
