LGBT Center Seeks Input

Contributed by Luca Maurer on 03/17/2008 

The Center for LGBT Education, Outreach & Services opened its doors at Ithaca College in the fall of 2001. During that time ideas for events, programs and services to be offered by the Center were sought from the campus community. Many of those ideas have been put into practice – the Resource Room, film screenings, a newsletter, the Rainbow reception for graduates and an annual speaker for National Coming Out Day – and as the Center continues to serve LGBT and Allied students at Ithaca College, I am looking for another round of feedback, suggestions and ideas about the Center’s services, events and programs.

What do you think? The LGBT Center wants to know! Provide your input here by answering some quick questions - LGBT Center survey -

A Cornell University student was hospitalized at Cayuga Medical Center (CMC) March 13 with presumed meningococcal meningitis and is in stable condition. He is the second Cornell student to develop the disease in the past week. On March 8, a 21-year-old student was hospitalized at CMC and is currently recovering in a hospital close to her home.

Tompkins County Health Department officials are working closely with Cornell to identify people with whom the students recently have been in close contact to arrange the delivery of preventive medication. IC students who attended any of three parties that took place just prior to our spring break may also have been exposed to the infection.
