On Friday, October 9, Ithaca College was made aware that a posting had been made to social media about a planned off-campus party by a group of Ithaca College students. The posting used language that was reprehensible for its racial and class stereotyping. The views expressed in this posting are antithetical to the college’s commitment to respect and inclusivity.

We recognize the destructive impact that messages such as the one posted by this group can have on members of our community, and remain dedicated to the task of combating bigotry and promoting inclusivity and mutual respect.
The off-campus group, which is affiliated with the national fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi, is not a recognized Ithaca College student organization. The college has no social fraternities and has no plans to allow any.

Ithaca College discourages our students from participating in any event designed around principles antithetical to our community’s commitment to respect and inclusivity.

Benjamin Rifkin
Provost and Vice President for Educational Affairs
