Community Agreement

Our actions have a significant impact on the Tompkins County area. While the health and safety guidelines described here delineate what will occur on campus, our expectation is that individuals associated with Ithaca College also demonstrate behaviors that are consistent with public health guidelines while off campus.

All members of our campus community are held to the Ithaca College Community Agreement which acknowledges this commitment to abide by health and safety guidelines. Noncompliance by just one person can have tremendous negative consequences for all. Through our individual and group behaviors, we will be able to achieve our common goal of successfully maintaining an "open" operational status.

Cooperative Planning

Ithaca College relies upon guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York State Department of Health, and Tompkins County Health Department (TCHD) in developing its operational plans. In addition, we work closely with Cornell University and Tompkins Cortland Community College, as well as county government officials, to assure that our plans consider the health and safety of our broader community.
