The All-College Review Board for Human Subjects Research (HSR) is responsible for reviewing all college research and teaching activities (i.e. surveys) conducted by faculty, staff, and students that involve the use of human subjects.

If you are uncertain whether your project requires review, or if you plan to submit an HSR proposal in the coming semester, please visit the All-College Review Board on Human Subjects Research  website under “H” in the directory.

You will find application forms, examples and instructions, proposal submission deadlines, committee meeting dates and a listing of members.

The College's grade submission policy allows the provost to change the date that final semester grades are due in any given semester in order to accommodate various calendar issues that might arise. Based on significant input from faculty, the school deans' offices, and the Office of the Registrar, the Provost's Office has decided to change the date that final semester grades are due in the fall 2014 semester.

For the fall of 2014 only, final semester grades will be due on Tuesday, December 30 at noon. This will serve as an opportunity to gather data on the implications of such a move that can then inform a discussion in spring 2015 about whether or not an ongoing policy change for the final semester grade submission deadline is in order.

Thank you.

The Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs will be sponsoring a fall break volunteer trip to Syracuse, and we need an adviser to make it happen!

Located in the Mission District, The Rescue Mission is just outside of the downtown area of Syracuse, NY. The RM campus has an emergency shelter, day center and serves three meals a day at their food services center. On any given night, they have over 250 men sleeping under our roof.  Each day, they serve over 725 meals to men, women and children who are hungry.  In 2012, they gave away over 70,000 pieces of clothing to those in need. This is truly an amazing resource in the Syracuse area, and we are very excited to return!

Dining Services Main Offices located in the Terrace Dining Hall will be closed today for an all-employee meeting. The Administrative Staff will not be available for mail deliveries/pick-ups or Faculty/Staff Meal Plan renewals.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. We will return to normal business hours (8:30 AM - 4:30 PM) tomorrow, August 19th. 

The first day of fall semester classes at Ithaca College is Wednesday, August 27. However, students and faculty members should follow their Monday class schedules for that first day of classes only. All other instructional days follow the ordinary schedules.

The College must follow the Monday class schedules on that first day to compensate for observing the Labor Day holiday (on the following Monday) and meet the minimum requirements for class hours established by the New York State Education Department.

Best wishes for a smooth and productive semester.

This is a reminder message, re-posted from 5/6/2014.

Like any organization that deals with sensitive information, Ithaca College must be in compliance with a variety of security standards. To ensure this compliance, our security practices and policies are regularly reviewed by external auditors, and often result in recommended or mandated changes to our security practices. One such recommendation that the college as a whole has been asked to comply with is the enforcement of screen saver passwords on virtually all college-owned computers.
