Dear Ithaca College Students, Faculty, and Staff:
As a member of our IC community, you probably spend more time on campus than you do anywhere else. How can we make your time at IC better, more welcoming, and more meaningful?

The survey is your opportunity to describe your personal experiences and observations at IC and offer suggestions that our next president can use in identifying priorities for improving the college.
