IC 3D Archaeology Visualization Team conducts ground-breaking laser scan of 250-year-old papier-mâché decorative ceiling at Philipse Manor Hall in Yonkers, NY
Contributed by Michael 'Bodhi' Rogers on 08/02/2015
Professor Rogers, his team of physics students Evan Van de Wall '15 and Ryan Fedora '16, and Dr. Scott Stull used a NextEngine 3D laser scanner to take readings every 0.1 millimeter across various elements of the ceiling. The papier-mâché decorative ceiling at Philipse Manor Hall is one of only two such ceilings still intact in the United States. Other traditional conservation and preservation methods are not helpful due to the fragile nature of the decorative elements.

Please consider this a follow-up to the Intercom message I shared on July 5th in which I detailed a new Project Approval Request (PAR) process for capital construction and renovation projects. As I mentioned in that communication, the new PAR process has been designed to ensure fairness and equity across the Divisions of the College. Accordingly, the Facilities Planning Committee has decentralized the initial component of the process by requiring all projects to be submitted directly to one’s Vice President.
A description of the PAR process, as well as the new PAR Form, have been added to the Facilities website.

I am pleased to share the 2015 Campus Master Plan with the campus community. The plan was approved by the Ithaca College Board of Trustees at their May meeting. The Board’s approval followed a year of focused effort to create the plan – including numerous forums in which students, faculty and staff shared their perceptions and feedback relative to iterative updates about the direction of the plan. Indeed, the collaborative nature of the Master Planning process was integral to the creation of the final version of the plan, and I am grateful that so many members of the campus community opted to participate.
