Connect, Support, Inspire, and Engage


The Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) is guided by the principles of the Ithaca College strategic plan, IC 2020, to inspire organizational growth and change toward an integrated, holistic approach to higher education. We do so through opportunities for faculty, staff, and administrators to connect with each other in a process of continuous professional development. We provide support for the IC Community to work individually and collaboratively in order to enhance their efforts in teaching, research, and service. Because learning happens everywhere, we promote evidenced-based pedagogies that cultivate student engagement, learning, and academic success.
