The incubator fosters collaboration and interdisciplinary research. We provide funding and practical support for initiatives that look to cross over – straying from expectations of department, discipline and institution. Our support includes seed funding for early initiatives to help researchers get started in their work to explore and identify problems to solve in their domains. We also sponsor and support events, conferences, and other network and training activities that help our members and affiliates with their research.
Our home is in the ILR School, and we host projects that collaborate with other parts of Cornell University and other organizations.
In partnership with Stanford University Graduate School of Education, ILR's Criminal Justice and Employment Initiative is conducting the Restorative Record Project.
“This new concept emphasizes evidence-based restorative factors that are better predictors of employability as opposed to the current and often biased hiring process and its overreliance on a criminal record and traditional résumé. We view the project as a paradigm shift that also allows employers to make better hiring decisions.” said Timothy McNutt, a former prosecutor and director of ILR’s Criminal Justice and Employment Initiative.
ILR Associate Dean of Outreach Ariel Avgar and Dr. Madeline Sterling are examining how working conditions affect low-wage frontline health care workers in New York and the care they deliver to patients.
