Open letter to the Ithaca College Community
We, the undersigned continuing full-time faculty in the Department of Sociology, are writing in support of our part-time and contingent co-workers in their present union negotiations with our college. We view these negotiations as necessary steps toward improved wages and a more welcoming working climate. Above all else we see this as an issue of equity.

We, the undersigned continuing full-time faculty in the Department of Writing, are writing to voice our support for our part-time and contingent colleagues in Writing and across campus in their collective union efforts to forge a mutually beneficial contract with Ithaca College. If we are to realize fully IC’s vision of a “student-centered learning community,” we must ensure that all instructors are compensated equitably, for there is no question that teachers’ working conditions are students’ learning conditions.

With a winter storm forecast to impact the region over the next 24 hours, we wanted to let the campus community know that college officials are closely monitoring the situation and will be consulting with local law enforcement agencies and other local employers, as needed.
As noted in the Ithaca College Policy Manual, weather conditions, no matter how extreme, normally will not close the college when classes are in session. Any announcement of a change in the college’s operating status will be made via the Emergency Notification System (ENS), posted on the college’s website and on the Emergency Hotline (274-1495), and distributed to local media outlets.

Roberta Peters Fields, Parent '79, world-famous opera singer and an Ithaca College honorary trustee, died on Wednesday, January 18, 2017. She was 86 years old.

During her long career she was especially noted for coloratura roles — those requiring high, light agile singing in virtuosic arias.
