With the departure of former Dean of H&S Leslie Lewis for the position of Provost at Goucher College, Ithaca College is embarking on a search for a new dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences.  H&S faculty and staff were asked to self-nominate to serve on the search committee; the Student Government was asked to give the names of three students one of whom would be asked to serve on the committee, as well.  The Provost, in consultation with the President, worked to assemble a search committee consisting of diverse individuals representing the different disciplinary areas of the School of Humanities and Sciences.  

Dr. Diane Gayeski, Dean of the Park School of Communications, graciously agreed to chair the committee.  AGB Search was selected to provide search and consulting services for this search and Ms. Julie Tea has been appointed as the AGB consultant working Ithaca College on this search.

Based on campus community feedback regarding the size and weight of the standard Dell laptop offered by ITS, we are moving to the Dell Latitude E7250 as the standard model. The E7250 is smaller and almost 2 pounds lighter, and should meet the needs of the majority of faculty and staff. Effective immediately, the Dell Latitude model E7250 will become the standard Windows laptop offered through the Technology Renewal Program, and for new purchases through the ITS Catalog in iProcurement.

The most recent version of Chrome, version 45, is not working with Parnassus at this time. This is likely due to security changes implemented in the latest version of Chrome.

Currently, Parnassus is only accessible through Internet Explorer on Windows, or Safari on Macs. This applies to both "self-service" and "core apps" functions of Parnassus.

ITS is investigating solutions to allow Parnassus to be accessed from other browsers.
