HSHP Invites Alumni Input
"Our fall 2004 freshman applications are up significantly from this time last year," says Dean Steven Siconolfi. "HSHP is an exciting place to be." Inspired by the growing opportunities in sport and health-related careers worldwide and the Ithaca College Institutional Plan, HSHP's new administrative team -- Siconolfi, associate dean Patricia Green, and assistant dean Janet Wigglesworth -- along with faculty and staff, is working to refocus and reenergize recruitment and marketing communication efforts.
"We still need to increase awareness of careers associated with HSHP among traditional and nontraditional populations, including transfer, continuing education, and professional development students," says Siconolfi. This spring the dean's office is sponsoring its first Discovering Health, Sport, or Leisure Careers High School Competition within the Rochester public schools.
The dean's office is inviting alumni support of current and future initiatives. If you would like to be involved as an internship host, career adviser, or guest in classes, contact the dean's office, now located in 320 Smiddy Hall: firstname.lastname@example.org or 607-274-3237.
