Congratulations to the students who participated in the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington on April 4/16 – 4/18, 2015.
As a program of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, promotes undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity in all fields of study through an annual conference for students. The first conference drew more than 400 participants from schools across the country. Now in existence for over twenty-five years, the conference regularly hosts more than 3,000 students and their faculty mentors to present their research through posters, oral presentations, visual arts and performances. NCUR was held at Ithaca College in 2011.

The most recent version of Firefox, version 37, is not working with Parnassus (on Mac or Windows). If you are seeing a “secure connection failed” error page when trying to log into Parnassus, you probably have version 37. Do not attempt to check the version, since checking the version will often initiate the update to the latest version, if one is available.
The only workaround at this time is to use a different Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Chrome on Windows, or Safari or Chrome on Mac.
ITS is actively working to investigate the issue.

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.
