Please join me on Thursday, December 5th for the third Faculty Colloquium of the academic year.  Dr. Michael Trotti, Department of History, will be presenting “Cultural History and Racial Violence:  Case Studies in Why the Humanities Matter.” 

Professor Trotti received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1999.   He explores a range of issues in the American past –political, economic, social - but he is particularly interested in pursuing the social implication of change:  how developments in American history affected different people (different in class, gender, race, ethnicity.)

Dear Colleagues,

Last year, I formally announced the rebranding and naming of the Ithaca College Annual Fund, or as you will often see it, the IC Annual Fund. This was an important first step in positioning Ithaca College to build a base of regular, consistent supporters who give to the greatest needs at Ithaca College as we prepare for the comprehensive campaign.

To date, our alumni, parents, and friends have responded well to this effort. In the fiscal year that ended May 31, we set a record in giving to the IC Annual Fund by raising $1.16 million in support, exceeding our initial goal, and we are working to set another record again this year. We had over 7,700 donors to the fund as well -- a positive indicator that we are building some recognition of the critical importance of this type of support.

To build on this clear message to constituents about the value of this support, we have established a policy to place the responsibility for annual solicitation with the IC Annual Fund within the Division of Institutional Advancement.
