Editorial: The right voice

Ithaca College has been praised for fostering an LGBT-friendly environment on campus and is giving new meaning to the phrase “find your voice” for transgendered people.

The new Voice Communication Modification Program for People in the Transgender Community at the college is a collaborative project of the Sir Alexander Ewing Speech and Hearing Clinic at the college, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Outreach and Services on campus, and Planned Parenthood. The program is a step in the right direction to helping participants feel their voice best reflects their identity.

Given the college’s commitment to diversity, the new voice modification program — one of few of its kind — speaks to action that does more than simply say Ithaca is a place where all types of people can feel comfortable in the college educational system.
