FLEFF: Health Landscapes - 42615 - HLTH 39902 – 01 “Landscape” was first used in reference to 17th century Dutch painting, then migrated to lived observations and experiences. Landscapes shape culture, character, community and health. Health landscapes: hospitals, waste treatment plants, waiting rooms, climate chaos, arteries and veins, neighborhoods, poverty, bodies.

Monday, February 8 - Inclusion, Cultural Fluency & Global Citizenship: mid-year gathering and learning community update
Contributed by Rachel Gould on 02/07/2016
Last September, the Symposium on Inclusion, Cultural Fluency, Global Citizenship launched a year-long series of conversations about helping the College to better prepare its students, faculty, and staff for an increasingly diverse socio-economic environment. Discussions have focused on how we can become more inclusive in all areas, more supportive of cultural fluency among our students and employees, and more focused on preparing our students for the “responsibilities of citizenship and service in the global community”. Following the September Symposium, several Learning Communities formed around these topics, and have been meeting since.
On Monday, February 8, from 3:00-5:00 p.m., in the Clark Lounge, we will be holding a mid-year gathering of those who participated in the Inclusion, Cultural Fluency & Global Citizenship Learning Communities, as well as those who did not have the opportunity to do so but are interested in becoming a part of these conversations.

The Ithaca College Board of Trustees charged Provost Rifkin to convene a task force to review and suggest changes to the structure of shared governance at Ithaca College. In its resolution, the Board of Trustees asked that the task force consist of students, faculty, and staff. The task force met for the first time on Thursday, January 28. The Task Force has decided that, in an effort to truly make this an inclusive process, we want and need the input from all members of the Ithaca College community.
We have crafted a brief survey that will be helpful to us as we begin our work. We value your input and appreciate you taking time to share your opinion in this brief survey.
