Submitted on behalf of Brian Dickens, Vice President for Human Resources

As a follow-up to the previous Intercom announcement on February 10, 2017, I am pleased to share that Ithaca College is beginning work on a revised staff compensation program (non-faculty positions). The development of this program is one of the College’s top priorities.
