Time: 6:00 PM

Location: Klingenstein Lounge

In 1969, a collective composed primarily of student-of-color student activists agreed to end what remains to this day the longest continuous student strike in the history of the United States. Enlivened, in a time of war and racial terror, by the idea that university resources could be repurposed toward the end of liberation, the strike’s culmination led to the official establishment of the first College of Ethnic Studies. In this talk, I return to the scene of the strike. I want to not only consider its historical significance and the lessons it might offer us today but also argue that honoring this legacy involves appreciating our distance from it. Our present moment of racial terror, mainstream neofascism, and liberation dreaming needs a different understanding of the relationship between knowledge and power and a new strategy for using higher education for emancipatory purposes.

On-Campus Food Pantry!

Hello Honorites!

20190828093705477_1.jpg

The Pantry, the Ithaca College On-site Food Pantry, opens for Fall for students, faculty and staff on Friday, August 30 from 4-5:30pm.  The Pantry is located in the DeMotte Room in Egbert Hall which can be accessed by taking the stairs to the left of the information desk down one level or from outside the building by using the stairs from the upper quads or the academic quad that lead to the back of Egbert Hall.

  • The pantry has a wide variety of food staples including refrigerated and frozen items as well as personal care items and paper products.
  • Fall Hours will be Tuesdays from 6-7pm and Fridays from 4-5:30pm.
  • Shoppers who bring a reusable bag when they shop will be entered to win a monthly drawing of food and cooking related items.
  • Shoppers are limited to one standard size reusable grocery bag each time they shop so that we have enough supplies for all shoppers.

Volunteers are needed to staff the Pantry! It’s a simple volunteer position – and will be one of the most rewarding things you spend time doing this semester.  Faculty, staff and students are welcome as volunteers.  We will provide all the training you need (which is minimal) . If you are interested, please go here to sign up.

More information on IC’s ongoing efforts to ensure food security can be found here.

Help us fill the food pantry on campus! Look for “The Pantry” donation cans at all retail dining locations.

Ongoing support for the food pantry is always needed and appreciated.  If you are interested in making a gift to support Ithaca College in ensuring food security you can do so here. Under “Designation,” please indicate that you would like to “Give to area(s) of your choice,” and then specify “IC Fund to Address Food Insecurity.”
