Ithaca's campus is generally very safe, but we all play a role in keeping it that way.

Caring Community

Cornell is committed to maintaining a bias-free climate based on civility, decency, and respect. If you are a victim, are concerned for someone's well-being, or have witnessed a questionable activity, you can help Cornell maintain a caring community by using the resources found on Mental Health at Cornell or by reporting a bias incident

Tips & Topics

  • Alcohol and drugs

    If you struggle with alcohol or drug use—help is available. 

  • Hazing

    Cornell has many terrific student groups, organizations, and teams. However, like other colleges and universities, we are not immune to hazing. The university takes hazing very seriously and so do most students.
