The Ithaca College Board of Trustees has elected six new members for the 2018–19 academic year.
Rosanna Ferro, vice president of the Division of Student Affairs and Campus Life, has been at work figuring out how to best improve the office she now runs.
One of the newest additions to the college’s senior leadership team is William Guerrero, who was announced as the college’s new vice president for finance and administration.
This will hopefully set a tone of enthusiasm and encourage involvement for the rest of the academic year — and for the rest of the new students’ time at the college.
The Ithaca College community has shown itself willing to begin this conversation but must acknowledge the voices of survivors and the harm that has been done.
“I stand here with you, continuing to have the courage to share with you who I am as a person and certainly as your leader,” Collado said.
If Ms. Collado was such a strong candidate, the search committee and the board had a responsibility to be forthcoming regarding this issue from her past.
The case is undoubtedly complex, meaning our response must be complex and nuanced as well. Anything less would be a moral failure on the part of the campus community.
