Here at Ithaca College there is a large group of professors who stand by their beliefs and ideals. These professors are activists and constantly go out and protest and do work in order to make these ideas known and to fight injustice. As a part of a collegiate institution they share their beliefs with their students and try to be the inspiration for them to get out and fight for what they belief in.

This project was made in collaboration with Kelsey O’Connor, editor in chief of The Ithacan.

In addition, here is the original article written by Kristen Mansfield.
