From Senior Vice President Nancy Pringle, Provost Linda Petrosino, and Professor Gwen Seaquist, representatives of the Ithaca College bargaining committee.
On Thursday, December 8, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) bargaining team representing part-time, per-course faculty communicated to the press that they are prepared to hold a strike vote early in the spring semester if their demands are not met. As the college’s bargaining team, we are disheartened and frustrated at the adversarial tone, misleading allegations, and willingness to disrupt the learning environment for our students.

Congratulations to Kyle Morris on being a recipient of the NYSATA iLead Scholarship! This scholarship provides funding up to $1,500.00 to attend the NATA iLead Conference in Grapevine, TX February 17-18, 2017. Kyle will also be selecting a session from the program and preparing an article to be included in the June 2017 NYSATA Newsletter.
iLead, a leadership workshop for undergraduate (juniors and seniors only) or graduate students who are NATA members, will be held in conjunction with the Athletic Training Educators’ Conference in early 2017. In addition, the NATA Ethnic Diversity Advisory Committee (EDAC) has created a diversity grant program for ethnically diverse athletic training students who would like to attend iLEAD but may not have the finances to do so.
Congratulations again, Kyle!

The Center for Faculty Excellence is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its Faculty-in-Residence program in the academic year, 2017-2018. The program will bring together up to 6 faculty members who have proposed a program of study, reflection, planning, and action related to some aspect of faculty excellence and development. Successful proposals will link faculty interests to Ithaca College initiatives and must have a potential impact beyond the faculty member’s own discipline or department. Proposals are especially welcome that address contemplative pedagogy, cultural fluency, mentoring, diversity, inclusion and equity, SOTL, and development of pedagogical strategies related to quantitative literacy and writing.
