Pastor Bruce Davenport, of the 7th Ward in New Orleans, will be speaking at Ithaca College on Friday, January 26th, from 12pm to 2pm in the Seminar Room of the Campus Center. He is in Ithaca to reach as many people as possible to talk about life in New Orleans, and the hopes of rebuilding. A local organization, Love Knows No Bounds, is sponsoring his visit to our community.

The purpose of this visit is to spread the word about what has and is happening in New Orleans, from the perspective of a Pastor who is committed to providing life sustaining and enriching resources to the people living in his neighborhood in the 7th Ward. In addition, we are hoping to gather volunteers and materials for the April trip to New Orleans which Love Knows No Bounds is organizing.

This will be an interactive question and answer session and you can drop in to the program at any time you may have available on Friday.

Please RSVP as soon as possible to Deb Mohlenhoff dmohlen@ithaca.edu, so we can be sure to order enough pizza and that our room is large enough.

Update on Search for New Provost

Contributed by Peggy Williams on 01/22/2007 

Following up on my notice to the campus community on January 3 regarding the resignation of Peter Bardaglio, and after extensive consultation with many individuals, I have decided to conduct a Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs search this spring. We have engaged the firm of Academic Search to assist us. The president of the firm, Dr. Jamie Ferrare, will be our consultant. He is quite familiar with Ithaca College and with the work the firm has done for us in recent years.

Jamie plans to visit the College in early February to gather input for the search. I will be putting a search committee together that will be representative of the College community. Our timetable is to complete the search by the end of the spring semester, so that we have a new Provost/VPAA on board prior to the start of the next academic year.

I expect to have an announcement soon regarding interim plans for the office. In the meantime, I appreciate your continued support for those who are carrying on the important work of the academic affairs division as we begin the new semester.

Peggy R. Williams
President
