REMINDERS FROM RISK MANAGEMENT: TO DRIVE AN ITHACA COLLEGE VEHICLE OR A VEHICLE FROM AN OUTSIDE RENTAL AGENCY (ENTERPRISE, HERTZ, ALAMO, ETC.) YOU MUST FIRST BECOME AN APPROVED ITHACA COLLEGE DRIVER.
Contributed by Diane Rogers on 04/05/2016
You can find information regarding the approval process AND applicable forms at http://www.ithaca.edu/riskmanagement/driving/.
Please note: Risk Management can only accept the most current driver information form (revised January 2016). Should your department or area have older copies of the driver information form, please dispose of them.
Also on this site you will find the Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Procedures document, which every driver should be familiar with if involved in an accident.
There is also useful information regarding domestic and international vehicle rentals from an outside agency.
We request that an employee submit a driver information form only when they have a need to drive; since there is a cost involved in obtaining an individual's Motor Vehicle Record.
If you have questions regarding any of the above or about your status you can call Risk Management at 607-274-3285 or email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Come hear the story of Holocaust Survivor: Fred Heyman. According to Howard Goldberg, "Fred will be talking about his experience growing up in Berlin and living in Berlin through the Holocaust with a Jewish father and non-Jewish mother. He talks about how people helped save him along the way, and how those people are "Upstanders". Fred tells his story with a message tied in, to be an "upstander". He calls his story the story of bad things happening as good people stood by and let it happen. He is great with teenagers and kids and adults because he always says, "I don't care where you're from or where you live, we were the same age once." He really hits on being active and taking a role in the world, knowing whats going on now."
