Have you ever had a question about race but were too scared to ask or didn’t know how to ask? How do you know racism when you see it? How do you experience racism? How do you think racism has affected your life? How do you cope with the effects? Do you think you are responsible, in any way, for eliminating racism?
Ithaca College students, staff and faculty are invited to come together in a safe environment to share feelings, thoughts, and experiences in a sustained, confidential, frank dialogue around issues of race and racism. The Diversity Awareness Committee will initiate one Student Talking Circle and one Staff/Faculty Talking Circle (co-sponsored by Human Resources) facilitated by professionals from the Multicultural Resource Center. Each Talking Circle will be made up of 20 racially and ethnically diverse people who will meet once a week for five consecutive sessions to self-reflect, share experiences, and learn from others’ perspectives and attitudes.

Tis the season to be merry and green. Check out these tips from Campus Center & Event Services to make your holiday party more eco-friendly:
Invites: Save money and resources by sending invites via email or text message. If it's a formal occasion, think postconsumer recycled paper for the invitations—it's paper made from old paper, so you're helping to complete the recycling loop.
Decorations: Skip the paper and plastic and decorate with natural items from your yard—such as evergreens, pinecones, or seasonal houseplants. Or consider making your centerpiece an edible one with fruits, nuts, breads and holiday cookies.
Party supplies: Use reusable dishes, utensils and cloth napkins. Rent or borrow items you won’t need more than once, like large punch bowls and chafing dishes. If you need to purchase items be sure that they are biodegradable or recyclable.
