Editorial: College must continue work to create a safe environment for all students

By The Ithacan January 30, 2024
According to Ithaca College’s hate crime log, there were five reported hate crimes in 2022 as compared to one in 2021, marking an increase in violence on campus. All of these instances were acts of destruction of property. In 2023, there were two hate crimes committed on campus. While this decrease signifies a move towards a safer campus climate, it is imperative that the college continues to take preventive measures to reduce hate crimes on campus.
The most recent report came from 2015, in which there were 664 incidents, 695 offenses, 731 victims and 387 known offenders, all with an anti-Semitic motivation. Between 2011 and 2014, the number of incidents and offenses were steadily decreasing until the 2015 spike.
