When registration begins on Monday, November 11, the new Online Course Override Form will be initiated replacing the various paper forms utilized by the campus community in previous semesters. This is a project developed by the Academic Workflow Implementation Group.

The Online Course Override Form is a streamlined process that will allow students to request access to a class for which they cannot currently register. The form also allows the faculty-reviewer the ability to manage course registration requests in a user-friendly and data-driven manner.

Plans for uniting the physical therapy program on South Hill are progressing on schedule, and I wanted to provide the campus community with an update on how that move will prompt some additional moves by other programs and operations.

As you may remember from our June announcement, we were able to take advantage of the renovation work already underway in Hill Center to include construction of the cadaver and movement analysis laboratories in that project. We are well into the construction design phase for those labs, which will be used not only by our physical therapy students and faculty, but also by other programs in the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance and elsewhere at the college.

As planned, students currently in the physical therapy program will remain in Rochester through the end of the summer of 2014, with the new facilities opening for the 2014–15 academic year.

Ithaca College recently completed an Effectiveness and Affordability review which identified a number of processes that were recommended for a more in depth review in an effort to identify potential gains in efficiency and application of industry best practices.  One such area that was identified is that of the College’s current purchasing processes.  In light of this information the College has decided to take a more in depth look at its current purchasing processes and compare them to current industry best practices and assess how strategic sourcing would benefit Ithaca College and what would be involved to move the College in that direction.
