Covid-19 has impacted our community in many ways. We are all coping with escalating stressors, isolation, grief, and disconnection from regular sources of support and stability. A particular concern during this time is for students who may be social distancing in a home, apartment, or dorm with an abusive partner or caregiver. This creates additional concerns about safety and resources while survivors are isolated from school, work, and other sources of connection and support.

Join the Advocacy Center for an online conversation about:

  • The impacts of COVID-19 on relationship violence

  • Available services on and off campus and how the Advocacy Center is supporting survivors during this time

  • Strategies to support someone you are worried about

  • Live Q&A

Ithaca College has been made aware of malicious, automated phone calls that have been received by a number of students over the past several days. The caller expresses concern about the amount of “green boxes that you have been taking,” and states that a “charge will be placed on your account” and “you will no longer be able to register for classes” unless you return the green containers, which are used by Dining Services for take-out meals.

This is false information, and the phone calls are not being made by Ithaca College.
