With the end of winter break and the start of the spring semester, I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the ongoing crisis in Haiti in the wake of the earthquake. As part of a global community of mutual care and commitment, I know that many members of the Ithaca College community have contributed and will contribute to relief efforts.
Don't miss this exciting slate of workshops for MLK Week. Topics include a Talking Circle on Race and Racism, a discussion of Modern Day Abolitionism, information about the building of a community memorial to remember the men lynched by a mob in the 1920s in Minnesota, a discussion of the IC Climate Action Plan, and a discussion with President Rochon entitled "Comfort and Challenge in 2010".
For more information, keep reading or visit the MLK Website for information about all of the exciting activities planned to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as we challenge the campus community to think about "Where Do You Stand?"
