9/11 Ten Year Commemoration

Ithaca College Pursuing Peace Together

A series of events on the Ithaca College campus and throughout the community will mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2011 terrorist attacks. Activities--many of which have been organized under the theme of "Pursuing Peace Together"--will include remembrance services, religious observances, lectures and a panel presentation.

"Our hope is that the 10th anniversary of 9/11 will serve as an opportunity for the community to come together in pursuit of peace," said the Rev. Carsten Martensen, Catholic chaplain at Ithaca College and organizer of many of the events. "The events are intended to both recognize the tragedy of that day and promote the possibilities for a better future."

Events will take place across the Ithaca College, Cornell University, Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3) and local communities. All events are free and open to the public.
