On April 12, ten ENVS students attended graduate classes during professional team presentations and met individually with policy team members, other graduate students, professors, and the director of the program. Thanks to the efforts of Rebecca Brenner, formerly of Ithaca College, now teaching at Cornell, this visit is the start of an informal pathway for ENVS students to explore and gain insight into careers in environmental policy.

Several ENVS students competed in the 2017 Policy Case Competition coordinated by the Politics Society at NYU. First developed in 2014, the Policy Case Competition is a three-round, highly competitive exercise where students are given the opportunity to learn and refine their policy-making and presentation skills. 

Zach Jacobsen, an environmental studies senior took the initiative to create a competition team including ENVS seniors Zoe Workstel, Chase Lurgio, and Zack Luckin. Together they developed and submitted a written policy memo outlining their key issues and propositions on an element of environmental policy. Although they did not continue to the final rounds, we applaud their passion and initiative in going beyond their program to compete in policy with peers from all around the nation.   

An online Ithaca College course on Environmental Ethics will be taught during Summer Session I (May 30 – June 30, 2017).  It can be taken from any location whatsoever provided there is access to the internet, and the class structure is designed with the flexibility needed to accommodate students' summer work schedules, whatever those may be. 


Course Attributes:   ICC - Humanities perspective; Theme:Quest Sustainable Future.

Cross-listing:  Students may also enroll for this course as Philosophy 25200.

In an effort to support the increasing growth of conferences and events occurring at Ithaca College during the summer, Parking Services has collaborated with Campus Center and Event Services to create new summer parking restrictions that are more hospitable to the many visitors that are attracted to come to Ithaca College over the summer.  The goal of this change is to create a more welcoming environment for our summer guests who are unfamiliar with our campus.  These changes are feasible given the significant reduction of faculty, staff and students accessing parking facilities on campus during the summer months.
