About Us

OUT in Cornell Tech (OUT) is an official student-run organization of Cornell Tech, a technology campus of Cornell University based in Roosevelt Island, New York City.

Aligned with Cornell Tech’s mission to advance technology as a means to a better quality of life for all communities in New York City, across the nation, and around the world, OUT aims to become a safe haven and communication catalyst for our members by building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community of students, while connecting them with faculty, and staff. We seek to build community with — not just for — real people and believe in the power of participation and representation.

While we have still have work to do to achieve these goals, our club aspires to:

  • act as a gateway to the diverse New York City LBGTQ+ tech scenes on every level;
  • serve as a community where they can empower each other, to make them feel seen and represented;
  • act as a platform to educate/advocate for the Cornell Tech and the Roosevelt Island communities about issues/causes that matter.
