Communications & Operations


I manage the communications and operations functions for the Office of Human Resources for Ithaca College... and I LOVE my job! 

I have been working for the College for over 12 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 Connections Newsletter
  • Recognitions for Service Awards Program
  • IC Annual Campus Carnival (May)
  • Official College Organization Charts
  • United Way (September/October)
  • Employee Appreciation Month (November)
  • Benefits Fair (November)
  • Holiday Luncheon (December)
  • Affinity Groups
  • Employee Development Funds (special requests)
  • HR Policies (Volumes III & V)

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."
