Posted on behalf of President Tom Rochon

The executive order signed by President Donald Trump on Friday, instituting a 90-day ban on admitting citizens of Libya, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen into the United States, has the potential to negatively affect our Ithaca College community and, conceivably, the entire higher education community. I join with academic leaders from across the country in expressing my concerns about the impact this executive order will have on the members of our campus community.

Open Letter to the Ithaca College Community:

Following the lead of other departments, we, the undersigned tenured faculty in the Psychology Department are writing to voice support for part-time and contingent colleagues in our department and others across the campus in their collective union efforts to forge a mutually beneficial contract with Ithaca College.  Short of securing a sufficient number of full-time continuing lines in departments across the college, the administration will continue for the foreseeable future to depend on contingent faculty to meet our instructional needs. Given this dependency on highly qualified adjunct faculty, with whom we work side by side, and given the significant disparity between their part-time wages and our full-time salaries, benefits, and job security, we believe it is in the best interests of all— students, all faculty, and administrators — that an agreement be reached sooner rather than later.
