Holiday Decorations/Celebration Statement


Contributed by Brian McAree

As we approach the convergence of many religious and cultural holidays in December, members of the Ithaca College community are asked to please take the following thoughts into consideration:

In recognition and celebration of the diversity among members of the Ithaca College community, individuals, offices, and departments wishing to decorate or visually observe holidays are encouraged to do so with a spirit of education and inclusiveness. We should be sensitive to the fact that the College community is made up of people from various religious and cultural traditions. Decorations, especially in public spaces, should represent that diversity in order to provide a welcoming atmosphere for all.

For more information and guidelines regarding three major traditions, see Holiday Decorations under the Council Activities menu on the Interfaith Council website.
