Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions:
Q. What is the purpose of this DEB Course?
A. As an academic community, Ithaca College is committed to providing an environment that encourages scholarship and personal growth. Students are expected to develop maturity, self-sufficiency, responsibility, self-understanding, and an understanding of and respect for the rights of others. This course is a first step towards talking about our community values and putting our college diversity statement in action.
Q. Does the course collect personal information about my feelings, attitude, and behaviors around diversity, equity, and belonging?
A. The course includes confidential surveys to help personalize your experience and to measure attitudes and behaviors in our student population. ALL SURVEY RESPONSES ARE CONFIDENTIAL. IC will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see an individual student's answers.
Q. What if I have technical problems with completing the course on my computer?
A. The DEB course works best on either Firefox or Chrome, so if you're using a different internet browser, you should consider making a temporary change for the purpose of completing the course. Free versions of Firefox and Chrome can easily be downloaded off the internet. For accessibility issues, select “Accessibility Mode” once you are in the course. Personalized technical support is available 24/7 via chat or phone. To access the Everfi Support Center, simply click on "Help" once you're in the course, or go directly to this link: support.everfi.com.

Q. What about students who do not have easy access to computers at home or in their community?
A. We ask that you consider all the possibilities for accessing a computer. A friend or family member may be willing to let you use their computer for this purpose. The course can be completed on a computer, iPad, or tablet with access to the internet and audio capabilities.
If it is truly impossible to access a computer with necessary technical capabilities, you may receive an extension to complete the course until a solution can be identified. Please email Hierald Osorto, Executive Director for Student Equity and Belonging, at email@example.com for more information.
