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.
