As a community, Ithaca College values a respectful environment free from harassment and discrimination. I believe that all of us recognize that unwanted advances, sexually explicit conduct, differential treatment, or offensive jokes have a detrimental impact on our community. Our obligations as members of the Ithaca College community, including some responsibilities specific to supervisors are outlined in the College’s Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Policy, the Institutional Policy on Disability and the Sexual Harassment Policy.
