I recently sent a letter to the parents of all Ithaca College students with an update on the College's efforts to enhance the safety and security of our campus. It included information on our new Emergency Notification System (ENS), plans to install an outdoor public address system, and our 24-hour locking policy for residence halls.

I wanted to share the text of that letter with the entire campus community. We will continue to provide information during the course of the year, as we further develop our plans for responding to emergency situations.
