Pro-Semitism Series with Jewish Student Union

The Pro-Semitism series focuses on encouraging both advocacy and allyship for both the IC and global Jewish communities. What is also important about these workshops is that they are meant for Jewish and non-Jewish students, faculty, and staff members. Basically, we are hoping to create an open space where people can learn more about our community in an effort to make positive social change.  

The first of these workshops starts on Thursday on 10/22 at 4pm (see attached). The remainder of the workshops will be at different times/days and cover different important topics (see the second attached thing). Anyone who is interested in attending any events should RSVP via this link: https://forms.gle/d9oPjpn3QqD9Q26k9 .

Ongoing Anti-Racist Workspaces for White-Identifying Students

Ithaca College Students of Color have called on White-Identifying students, faculty, and staff to do the internal work necessary to be anti-racist. These ongoing workspaces are designed for White-identifying students to understand the many layers of systemic racism in order to dismantle them, and to understand their role in this anti-racist work.

Dear students,

We have created a year-long plan to host anti-racist workspaces for white-identifying students to be in community to learn, grow, challenge one another, and strive to shift from “I am not racist” to truly understanding what it means to be anti-racist in thought and practice. Whether you are just beginning your journey of understanding racism and what it means to be anti-racist or are well-practiced and disciplined at interrupting the script of white supremacy, you are welcome and encouraged to participate. This series was created in collaboration with the Center for IDEAS, and will be among the SACL Signature Events. 

For the fall semester, workspaces will be held on Fridays from 11am-12pm EST unless otherwise noted. While you can chose which workspaces you would like to RSVP for, we encourage you to attend as many as possible as these concepts are all interrelated. You can view and register for all upcoming events on the Center for IDEAS engage portal or on the White-Identifying, Anti-Racist Workspaces engage portal. You must register for each event individually to receive important resources and the Zoom link. Click on “View More Events” to see the entire series. 

Please consider registering for the next three upcoming workspaces:

We also have a newly created website to share resources and opportunities for further learning. Here you can see the list topics for all upcoming workspaces.

Please join us in this work.

Park “Election Credit” Internship 

FALL 2020 (October/November/December)

Voting is a fundamental right for all Americans and exercising that right in all elections, local, state, and national, can help create meaningful change. Any difference in a community starts at the ballot box, and voting allows citizens to affect the most important issues to society.  The Roy H Park School of Communications at Ithaca College will observe this by providing an opportunity for its students to secure .5 to 1 for credit internship credits.

“The Park School wants to do more than just prepare the storytellers of tomorrow. We want to produce model citizens, and I can’t think of a better way than having our students engage in the political process.” ~ Dr. Jack Powers, Interim Dean, Roy H Park School of Communications, Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY

Engage & Earn “Experience” credit for your election activities Fall 2020! We’ve created both academic and nonacademic credit categories.
