The importance of counting college students where they spend the majority of their year cannot be underestimated, particularly in small college towns like Ithaca, NY. The Census impacts representation at the state and federal level, access to state and federal funding, as well as provision of social services. Having Ithaca College and Cornell students undercounted, particularly in this challenging year impacted by COVID-19 could have a devastating impact on Tompkins County.

This Census presentation will give you a well-rounded background about the 2020 Census and its process for counting every person in the United States.

Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Culture and Communication as an online course during Winter 2020 (Jan 6-17, 2020).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements.
