To the campus community,

We became aware today of a recent social media post by an Ithaca College student that contains an abhorrent racial slur. The college strongly condemns such language as antithetical to our values, and we understand the hurt that our community has experienced as a result of it. Such incidents are a reminder that we can never become complacent, and that education is a constant and ongoing necessity when striving to make our campus a place where respect for all people is truly our community’s standard.
