An annual report of suicide prevention related activities has been compiled for a number of years. Last year the report took the form of a newsletter and was well received. This year, the newsletter format was repeated and provides a nice summary of the past academic year's suicide prevention activities. Check it out and learn how we're stompin' out the stigma at IC that keeps those in need from seeking mental health services.

In the next couple of days, all faculty and staff will receive a brochure entitled "Eliminate Bias-Create a Community of Respect." All on-campus students will also receive this publication at the opening of the fall semester. The College has published this brochure over the past few years to educate all community members about how to prevent incidents of bias and hate on campus, and what steps should be taken to report such an incident if it were to occur. Please review this information carefully. We need everyone's help in keeping the Ithaca College community a safe, accepting, and positive place to live, work, and study.
