Dear Staff,

As you are aware, the College is trying to balance protecting the health of our campus community with the fiscal pressures of containing the spread of COVID-19. An important public health strategy in minimizing spread is the required asymptomatic testing of anyone accessing campus. In addition, areas that people access are regularly disinfected by our facilities team. In an effort to extend our budgeted testing dollars as long as possible into the spring, as well as to make every effort to preserve time and costs associated with our facilities staff, we are asking that employees limit their access to campus between December 18 and January 25 to the greatest extent possible

Thank you for your participation in the Supervisor's Meeting last week. 

As part of our preparations for spring, we will be sending shortly to all staff a request that they complete the Daily Health Screening and Testing Registration form for the spring semester. This form asks that employees indicate how often they will be on campus in the spring and whether their position is high or low contact. This will help us with tailoring the Daily Health Screening to employee needs and the frequency at which employees should be testing. Your employees may reach out to you for assistance with completing the form. Please use some of the strategies we discussed in the Supervisor's Meeting for making determinations about who must be on campus in the spring versus who can remain remote. Please reach out to your Vice President as needed for more guidance. Supervisors will receive a summary of all direct reports registration information so that you can follow up to discuss directly with them if their plans for accessing campus in the spring are inconsistent with how your department will be operating in the spring.

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.

Roots is an online environmental journal designed to showcase issues in environmental science. Roots is run by students in the Environmental Studies and Sciences Department at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY.

All members of the Ithaca College community are encouraged to use their best judgment in traveling safely and avoiding unnecessary risks during the winter storm that will bring potentially substantial snowfall to much of the region overnight. With instruction remote for the semester and a greatly reduced on-campus student population and workforce, at this time the college does not anticipate any formal change to its operating status.
