Submitted on behalf of Gerald Hector, Vice President for Finance and Administration.

Here at Ithaca College we have embarked on a number of major projects and initiatives that seek to improve upon all aspects of the college's operations. The Division of Finance and Administration factors heavily in these changes. In an effort to ensure that the campus remains informed about the changes, we have created web sites, sent INTERCOM announcements, and also produced In The Loop summaries. Today we are sharing an inaugural annual report that captures all the major accomplishments the division had during the academic year 2013-2014 that highlights the much needed team work required from many campus constituents. We will continue to find creative ways of keeping the campus informed of the work that is taking place in the division, to ensure that everyone remains engaged in the critical work that is ahead, and more importantly how everyone can become more involved in accomplishing the college's shared initiatives.

Take advantage of the more than 350 concerts offered each year by the School of Music. A full listing of all concerts and events is available at; highlights across the next week are listed below.
