The Office of Human Resources at Ithaca College aspires to lead positive efforts for Diversity, Inclusion, and Engagement as a member of a diverse community. We recognize that Diversity encompasses multiple dimensions that relate to the various backgrounds, perspectives, and values of our community members. We know that valuing diversity enriches our community and positively impacts the life experiences of all members of the IC community.
Diversity and Inclusion
We consistently strive to enhance a welcoming, inclusive, and respectful community. To heighten awareness around the richness of diversity, we have developed a calendar to remind us of some cultural holidays, religious observances, and celebrations from around the world. Bringing awareness for all employees to these holidays and observances reinforces that Ithaca College is committed to creating inclusive, engaging, and rewarding experiences that promote an environment and culture of excellence.
