Communications & Operations


I manage the communications and operations functions for the Office of Human Resources, a unit within the Division for Human and Legal Resources at Ithaca College... and I LOVE my job! 

I have been working for the College for 15 years; my position reports to the AVP for Human Resources, and I am responsible and/or provide logistical support for a number of campus initiatives, programs and publications, such as:

HR Newsletters & Website
Employee Recognition & Appreciation
IC Annual Campus Carnival (May)
Official College Organization Charts
Benefits Fair (November)
Holiday Celebrations
Employee Development Funds (special requests)
HR Policies (Volumes III & V)

I hold separate degrees in Computer Electronics, Business Administration, and Communications Management & Design, with minors in Accounting, Legal Affairs, and Marketing. I also hold a Masters in Strategic Communication. 

I almost always have knowledge of "all things HR" taking place on- and off-campus, so feel free to call (w: 607-274-3083, c: 607-379-0804) or email me at ngraves@ithaca.edu or nishami777@gmail.com if you have a question or want to provide feedback.

On a personal note, I am a youth mentor and graphic designer. I love to sing, dance, create ... and ROCK OUT to Santana's "Smooth," cry to Michael Bolton's "How Am I Suppose to Live Without You," and mellow out to Chuck Magione's "Feel So Good!" I am a fan of Hugh Laurie of the TV show "House" and Tim Roth of "Lie to Me."
