Writing a Personal Mission Statement

Contributed by Jane Ray on 05/18/2014 

From the moment you were born, you had unique gut instincts.  There were things you "knew" long before you were taught or learned to think; things that stick with you for life.  The way you play; how much "alone time" you need or want; the type of friends you choose; the work that interests you; how and whom you date; the physical exercise you like best; the spiritual practice that appeals to you; the type of living situation you prefer, what a "fun" vacation looks like - in short, all of the things that make you feel most fully alive, most joyful, most "you."  Not only were these drivers present in you at birth - they can often be expressed in just five to seven words.

On Wednesday, May 21st ITS will be performing extensive work on the IC web infrastructure which will result in a 2-3 hour downtime of websites and web services starting at 6:00 AM.

The main IC website, as well as myHome, myIthaca, and HomerConnect will all be unavailable during the downtime. While the normal IC website content will not be available, people who attempt to access www.ithaca.edu will be re-directed to a temporary web page that will provide direct links to the following major services:

  • Outlook email and calendar
  • The ACE page (access to HomerAdmin, Parnassus, Argus and Advance)
  • Sakai

All other Web services will be unavailable. We'll make every effort to have the work completed by 8:00 AM, but if complications arise the downtime may extend to as late as 9:00 AM.

Note that myHome is set as the default browser Web page on many campus computers, and will display a "page not found" message during the downtime.
