The network upgrades that were performed this week have been completed with a high degree of success! 

As a result of this week’s work we have made significant progress in modernizing our campus network infrastructure.  We have replaced critical network hardware that was over 8 years old, and made a number of configuration changes to improve redundancy and availability.  

While a huge step forward, there is still work that is needed to further improve reliability and functionally of our network infrastructure for the campus.  Pending no unforeseen circumstances, the remaining work planned for this summer will require less downtime and disruption.  More details will be forthcoming. 

Thanks again for your support, understanding and patience as we undertook this critical maintenance work!

Gerald Hector, who has served for the past three years as vice president of the Division of Finance and Administration, has accepted an offer to become the vice president for financial affairs at Cornell University. Hector’s last day at the college will be July 27.

Ithaca College President Tom Rochon says that Hector has been a valuable contributor to the leadership team during his too-brief time at IC, helping strengthen not only his division, but also the college as a whole for the coming decade by hiring such talented individuals to head the three major functions under his command: Finance, Facilities, and Digital Instruction and Information Services.
