In an effort to support the increasing growth of conferences and events occurring at Ithaca College during the summer, Parking Services has collaborated with Campus Center and Event Services to create new summer parking restrictions that are more hospitable to the many visitors that are attracted to come to Ithaca College over the summer.  The goal of this change is to create a more welcoming environment for our summer guests who are unfamiliar with our campus.  These changes are feasible given the significant reduction of faculty, staff and students accessing parking facilities on campus during the summer months.

In light of on-going campus and global tension, Faculty Council passed a motion in January that asked itself to craft a values statement that reflected its commitment to basic human decency.  The statement went through many iterations; during the process, Council solicited the input and support of the Student and Staff Councils.  What you read, therefore, represents the collaborative efforts of Ithaca College’s governing bodies.  Although it may not speak perfectly to anyone, we hope it speaks something to everyone.
