On Thursday, March 23rd at 9:00 AM in Klingenstein Lounge, join us for a conversation about the barriers and potential solutions to how women can lead innovation in edtech.  This session will provide a forum for all participants to engage in a meaningful conversation about ways women are leading, and why it is important for their voice to be a part of the conversation and ways women’s ideas can be heard no matter where in the organization they are. The conversation will highlight the unique contributions and perspectives women’s innovations contribute to edtech and the barriers they often confront, fostering a deeper appreciation about why inclusivity is vital to education technology. The goals of the session include developing strategies for understanding the value of women leading in IT, overcoming gender barriers women may experience in higher ed and IT, supporting women in advancing in IT, enhancing the support of women in leadership roles, and empowering women, junior and senior, in IT.

The Diversity and Inclusion Discussion Circle invites members of the campus community to attend its weekly gatherings on Wednesdays at noon in Klingenstein Lounge (Please note this week we will be in Clark Lounge). One to two times a month, a guest presenter leads a discussion to take a deeper look at a topic related to diversity and inclusion.  During the Wednesday sessions where there are no presentations scheduled, we share reactions to current events and/or discuss presentations and articles that relate to the topic of diversity and inclusion.

This month our scheduled presenters, Kayla Wheeler, diversity fellow in the department of philosophy and religion; and Dr. Rumit Singh Kakar, assistant professor in the department of physical therapy, will explore how Islamophobia impacts Muslims and people who are read as Muslim, especially in a post-9/11 context. 

Please join us this Wednesday, March 8 at noon in Clark Lounge. Come with an open mind and willingness to learn.

Posted on behalf of President Tom Rochon and Interim Vice President for Finance and Administration Janet Williams.

At its recent meeting, the Ithaca College Board of Trustees approved the operating budget for the 2017–18 fiscal year.

The $234.5 million revenue budget represents a 1.6% decrease compared to 2016-17. The decrease is due primarily to the fact that the larger-than-usual class that arrived in fall 2013 will graduate in May of this year. As a consequence, even if fall 2017 enrollment targets are met our overall enrollment is expected to drop, resulting in lower revenue.

The Ithaca College chapter of American Marketing Association (ICAMA) hosted a fundraiser during the week of Valentine’s Day in support of the Tompkins County SPCA. Members of this student organization lined their tables with a vast, colorful array of sweets to draw in an audience and potential donors from afar.

Mitch Wajda caught up with ICAMA’s President, Kat Fischer, while she was handing in her donations raised from the weekend. She was excited to chat about the student organization’s raised earnings and donations that is going to a wonderful cause. Here is what she had to say:

 “$84 was raised to support their initiatives by selling various types of candy. The SPCA is a great organization and the Ithaca College community was happy to provide support! We promoted the event using social media and by putting up vibrant posters around campus. ICAMA plans to coordinate additional fundraising event to support a variety of community organizations.”
