(The Ithican) The Ithaca College Student Government Association passed a bill March 16 to create an online system to report microaggressions, which sponsors of the bill said will create a more conducive environment for victims to speak about microaggressions.
The bill, sponsored by Class of 2018 senator Angela Pradhan, calls for the implementation of a campus-wide online system to report microaggressions to "make Ithaca College a safer, more inclusive and diverse community for all students."
Pradhan said the online system would fill what she sees as a lack of an adequate system to report microaggressions.

"I know a lot of senators are working on microaggression stuff within their respective schools, but I felt that there was a need for something to happen schoolwide," Pradhan said. "And if there was a concrete way to document [microaggressions] online, it would provide students a way to kind of state what's going on."
