As promised last week, I would like to communicate to the campus community important information regarding the College’s fiscal year 2009-10 budget that has just been approved by the Ithaca College Board of Trustees. Let me state at the outset that I am grateful for the hard work done by the Budget Committee and by the many members of the campus community who made valuable contributions to the budget process. The trustees were very appreciative as well.
Ithaca College remains officially open. Because of the severe weather currently impacting the region, however, we want to remind the campus community of our closing policies and procedures. As per the Ithaca College Policy Manual, weather conditions, no matter how extreme, normally will not close the College when classes are in session. Classes or specific activities may be delayed or canceled without an official closing.
At this time of year, we're all in the giving and caring spirit. Keep that spirit going by signing up to participate in the service projects occurring as part of MLK Day 2009 on January 19.
