The IC/Longview Partnership: Opportunities for Community Involvement


Contributed by Christine Pogorzala

Partnership activities involving Ithaca College and Longview, a residential facility for older adults located on Danby Road across from campus, reached an all-time high during the past semester. Approximately 370 students, 28 faculty, and 7 staff members were involved in more than 50 Longview-related activities during spring 2003.

There are many opportunities for members of the Ithaca College community to become involved with Longview, including:

The Longview/Ithaca College Shuttle

On days that classes are in session there is a shuttle that provides transportation between Longview and the College. It runs about every 15 minutes from approximately 8:45 a.m. to 1:05 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and from 9:10 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with main stops at Textor and the Center for Health Sciences. This shuttle is available to both the Longview and Ithaca College communities.

For a complete listing of volunteer activities, you may view the list on the Gerontology Institute website. The shuttle schedule also will be posted on the site with copies available at the Campus Bookstore and the Campus Center prior to the start of classes. For more information, e-mail or call Chris Pogorzala, Ithaca College-Longview coordinator, at 274-1051.
