Submitted on behalf of Mark Coldren, Associate Vice President of Human Resources

As many of you know, Mary Tomaselli will soon be ending her time here at Ithaca College as Director of Employee and Organizational Development.

Mary has helped many of us here to navigate and lead transitions effectively in our work lives, and now it is time for a transition of her own.  Her presence, guidance, encouragement, and care will surely be missed.

Since she began her work at Ithaca College in fall of 1997, Mary has been dedicated to enhancing the engagement and effectiveness of staff, faculty, administrators, and students.  Through her organizational and leadership development, design and implementation of departmental and divisional planning retreats, and her coaching and consultation in supervision and performance management, Mary has worked with almost everyone on campus.  She touched the lives of many of our students as a faculty member teaching leadership in the RLS program.

We welcome you to stop by the Office of Human Resources, 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 12, to congratulate Mary and wish her well.  (Tissues will be available.)  Well wishes via phone at X-41239 and email at mtomaselli@ithaca.edu are appreciated as well.

Thank you for all you have contributed on behalf of the staff, faculty, administrators and students at Ithaca College, Mary.  Congratulations!

Congratulations, Mary! Although this is a HUGE LOSS for IC, you can retire knowing you gave it your all. You have helped so many people on this campus and beyond. Thank you for your outstanding teaching for our department as well as co-authoring the textbook with me. Enjoy your leisure! You are the best.

Mary,

Your leadership vision, knowledge and energy has empowered us all as employees and supervisors of Ithaca College.

You have taught us to; trust ourselves; take on challenges that we thought might not be possible; and most importantly, to actively listen.

Be well,
Ben

I'm so very happy for you, Mary (and a wee bit jealous, truth be told)! I hope that retirement gives you as much joy as you have given all of us over the years. Having said that, when I read this, my eyes immediately puddled...so good that there will be tissues handy at your party next week! It's oft said, but never truer than with you...I'm having a really hard time imagining an IC without a Mary Tomaselli. You earned this time, you so deserve it, but oh man are we going to miss you. You're irreplaceable, Mary. You really are.

"Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it..."

Love you, Mary!

It's hard to imagine IC without Mary Tomaselli on campus. Mary, you've made a
huge difference in the lives of so many through the many classes of Leadership
that you led, to your work with Supervisor's Academy. But it's your ever-present
smile and positive, affirming style that I'll miss. You've left a deep legacy here!

I'll miss the smile that leaves everyone else smiling, the we-can-do-anything attitide, and that black and white wardrobe!! All the very best to you in this next phase of your life adventure! Carol
