Dear Ithaca College Community,

Like so many Americans—and so many people around the world—I am completely appalled and horrified by the mob action and scenes of destruction that have unfolded today in our nation’s capital.

It is with mixed feelings that I write to share that Cheryl Thomason, Director of Benefits Programs, has decided to retire from Ithaca College after over 26 years of dedicated service to Ithaca College.  Throughout her time at IC, Cheryl assisted countless employees as they navigated various life events, from onboarding as new hires, to integrating work and life through family and/or medical leaves, and all the way through to retirement and beyond.  We wish Cheryl well!  Should you require benefits assistance, please reach out directly to benefits@ithaca.edu and your inquiry will be directed as appropriate.

We are seeking volunteers to serve as College Trained Advisors and/or Board Members for cases of sexual misconduct. Both Advisors and Board Members play a critical role in protecting student rights and enacting due process measures.

College Trained Advisors are part of a pool of college employees made available, through the Title IX Office, to complainants and respondents as they go through the investigative and student conduct processes. Advisors are an invaluable supportive measure for participants of the sexual misconduct process, as they offer support, knowledge, and a helping hand throughout the process.

Board Members will be called upon for Conduct Review Boards to review all evidence collected during an investigation and presented by Complainants and Respondents during the hearing. This board will present a finding based on the preponderance of evidence. Conduct Review Board members are an essential part of the decision-making process and ensure a fair and equitable experience for all involved parties throughout the duration of the hearing.
