The Ithaca College administration and the leaders of the three IC governance bodies – Faculty Council, Staff Council and Student Government Association – announce a meeting on Addressing Community Action on Racism and Cultural Bias open to the entire campus community on Tuesday, October 27, at 5 pm in the Glazer Arena of the A&E Center.

As the leadership of the college and its constituent bodies, we agree that now is the time for IC to focus its efforts on actions that will lead to a significant advancement in the campus climate for diversity and inclusion. The purpose of this meeting will be to list a set of actions that we are identifying as first steps to be undertaken immediately. We will seek the feedback of those present on our list of actions as well as on additional actions directed at creating a more inclusive community that values diversity in an environment of mutual respect and inclusion.

Signed,
Tom Rochon, President
Dominick Recckio, President, Student Government Association
Peter Rothbart, Chair, Faculty Council
Sean Reilley, Chair, Staff Council
Benjamin Rifkin, Provost and Vice President for Educational Affairs

Addressing Community Action on Racism and Cultural Bias Comment from henderso on 10/26/15
Of course, this is scheduled when there are MANY classes taking place. I guess that whole IMMERSIVE learning thing (just like the "IMMERSIVE" learning demonstration on Saturday?) takes priority over the work of the classroom.

Could this not have been scheduled during one of the two common hours or at night after 8:05, when far fewer undergraduate classes are offered?

I guess that might not have been convenient. Heaven forbid.

Can you tell us a bit more about the format of the event?
Will we work in small groups? Will there be a survey?
