Student Career Development

Ecosystem Awareness, Health & Productivity Program

This program uses Ithaca College Natural Lands (500 acres) as the focal resource for education, research and experimentation to enhance innovative courses and exemplary land stewardship practices as part of institutional commitment to change. This effort will enable students to gain intimate knowledge of the ecosystems in which we live, identify signs of ecosystem stress and approaches to rejuvenation, and how to sustainably maximize ecosystem services for human use without degradation of the ecosystem itself. Program includes outreach to local K-12 schools through our existing Partnership in Teaching Program, summer internships for students, with support for faculty supervision and land management expertise.
