General Information

Mission

To provide a foundation for a lifetime of learning, Ithaca College is dedicated to fostering intellectual growth, aesthetic appreciation, and character development in our students. The Ithaca College community thrives on the principles that knowledge is acquired through discipline, competence is established when knowledge is tempered by experience, and character is developed when competence is exercised for the benefit of others.

A comprehensive college that since its founding has recognized the value of combining theory and performance, Ithaca provides a rigorous education blending liberal arts and professional programs of study. Our teaching and scholarship are motivated by the need to be informed by, and to contribute to, the world's scientific and humanistic enterprises. Learning at Ithaca extends beyond the classroom to encompass a broad range of residential, professional, and extracurricular opportunities. Our undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and alumni all contribute to the learning process.

Ithaca College is committed to attracting a diverse body of students, faculty, and staff. All members of the College community are encouraged to achieve excellence in their chosen fields, and to share the responsibilities of citizenship and service in the global community.

Student Responsibilities

A student's behavior must not interfere with the activities of the College or with other students' pursuit of educational objectives. Any behavior on the part of individual students or groups that endangers the health or safety of the College community will not be tolerated. Standards of conduct designed to protect the rights of all members of the College community and preserve the functioning of the College as an educational institution are published in the "Student Conduct Code" and the rules and regulations section of the "Residential Life Guide" -- both in the College student handbook which can be located on the Ithaca College website at www.ithaca.edu/handbook, and at www.ithaca.edu/judicialaffairs.
