Where does our time go? Somewhere in the middle of our overlapping project deadlines, meetings, and daily emails, we are all just trying to do good work, but it’s hard to keep up. We do our best to stay organized with productivity apps and calendars and “lifehacks” but in the end we are humans and easily distracted by funny videos of cats — how can we be expected to actually get stuff done each day?

Presidential Search Update

Submitted on behalf of James W. Nolan Jr. ’77, Parent ’01, chair of the Presidential Search Committee

It has now been just over three weeks since the search for Ithaca College’s next president officially went “live” with the publication and distribution of the position prospectus. We are now in full gear. Our search consultants are compiling profiles and beginning to contact candidates, and we are working with them to ensure the qualities of our candidates are consistent with our needs as an institution. We are still early in the process, but I am very optimistic about our prospects due to the rich candidate pool already in front of us.

Career Services wishes to notify the campus community of a temporary suspension of our summer drop-in hours service​ due to the number of current vacancies on our career counseling staff.  We will continue to meet with students and alumni for appointments as usual and drop-in hours service will resume at the start of the 2016-2017 academic year. This temporary change to our service model will enable us to complete our active searches as well as focus on other key initiatives and training.
We appreciate the support and understanding of the IC community during this exciting time of transition.
