Administration and POC at IC issue statements at Open House

College anticipates Open House Protest

The Ithaca College community embraces free speech and student engagement around real-world problems. Our curriculum encourages investigation of identities, power and justice, and the quest for a sustainable future. We recognize that our community is not immune to the challenges that face our nation or world. You may observe students today actively lending their energy and voices to support a better campus community and stronger culture of diversity and inclusion.

POC at IC hands out Open House statement

We anticipated the appropriation of narratives by a statement provided by the administration to speak for the events that occur on this campus. This statement does not include the voices of the ALANA community. When a community is not allowed to speak for itself, it inherently begins to lose its validity, its power. They have given you a story; we have a different narrative. We hope you are open to hearing perspectives other than that of the administration. If you would like to know more about the POCatIC movement, members of the ALANA community and allies will be gathered at the fountains in front of Dillingham Center.
