Please join us on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 from 4:00-5:00 p.m. on the 3rd floor of the Peggy Ryan Williams Center.  A reception will be included as we hope to create a relaxed and informal environment to view the artwork.

As National Eating Disorders Awareness Week comes to a close, it’s important to understand the true nature of eating disorders. Maybe you had no idea that you can’t always tell by looking that someone is in the throes of an eating disorder, or that for some, innocently beginning a diet can lead to a full-blown eating disorder. They are serious illnesses and not a phase or a lifestyle choice.

When someone has an eating disorder, it is vital to seek help. Because of the complex nature of the illness, a comprehensive treatment team which includes medical, nutritional, and psychological therapies is recommended. The earlier treatment begins, the better chance there is for a full recovery.

Farewell to Kim Anderson

Please join me in congratulating Kim Anderson on her new position as Assistant Director for Web Communications at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia. Her last day at Ithaca College will be March 11.

Kim began her time at Ithaca serving as the marketing communications manager for OES. While there, she helped reshape numerous campaigns and programs including a revision of the OES website. She later moved to the School of Humanities and Sciences, taking on duties for the largest of our five schools. Kim formed a great relationship with members of the H&S Dean’s Office, and together they worked on projects such as Open House programming and unified collateral, enhanced promotional materials with the Department of Theatre, strategic plan and materials for our graduate education programs, and the current Textor/CNS display project.

We wish her success with her new endeavors.

The Office of Human Resources is pleased to partner with TIAA-CREF to offer "Equally Prepared: Financial Planning for the LGBT Community" on Wednesday, March 11 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
