In an effort to better serve the constituencies of Ithaca College, a central number has been created for use as the main contact number for the Office of Human Resources.  Beginning immediately, any individual wishing to reach our office can dial 274-8000.  This is currently the only extension on campus beginning with an 8.  This number directly replaces the following:

  • General Benefits, 4-3245
  • Recruitment, 4-1207
  • Student Employment, 4-1171 

All other function areas (Compensation/Payroll, Employee & Organizational Development, Employee Relations & Diversity, and HR Information) can also be reached by dialing this number or directly.

How did the MAP originate? The MAP was proposed by two student groups: SSDP (Students for a Sensible Drug Policy) and the SGA (Student Government Association). Meetings were held during 2009-10 involving students, staff, and administrators. In May, 2010, the MAP was approved and endorsed by the SGA, the President’s Council, and the Board of Trustees as a pilot program. The impact of the MAP will be periodically evaluated to determine whether it should become a permanent Ithaca College policy.

What is the purpose of the MAP? A survey at IC found that some students are reluctant to seek help in alcohol or drug-related emergencies because of fear of college judicial consequences. Since alcohol or drug overdose, poisoning, and misuse are potentially fatal, it is essential that medical assistance be called immediately if a concern exists.The purpose of the MAP is to reduce harm, and ultimately save lives, by encouraging students to seek assistance for their friends and themselves when a medical emergency arises due to the use of alcohol or other drugs.
