A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability, including the issues, bills, and ordinances for or against which the institution has advocated:

Ithaca College president Tom Rochon was elected in 2011 to the Board of Trustees of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities (cIcu), an organization that represents the more than 100 private, not-for-profit higher education institutions in New York on issues of public policy. The mission of the cIcu is to develop consensus among its members and advance higher education public policy at the state and federal levels. The board represents executive-level participation from colleges and universities in every region of New York State and highlights the diversity of institution type and size within New York’s independent sector of higher education. President Rochon currently serves as Treasurer of the CICU board of Trustees, as well as chairing the board's Finance & Administration Committee.

Through CICU, Ithaca College advocates for a significant number of legislative measures that support the quality and affordablity of student education in New York State. http://www.cicu.org/legislation-policy/legislative-priorities
