Dear campus community,

As the 2016 spring semester begins and we celebrate the Martin Luther King holiday, it offers us a prime opportunity for reflection, renewal, and action. It enables us to think about the current social and racial issues we face and how we can come together to improve relationships.  It also provides a time to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. His contributions continue to inspire our work and offer us the opportunity to build upon the civil and human rights work he dedicated his life to and gave his life for.

Dear Ithaca College Community,

Today, Tom Rochon announced his retirement at the end of the 2016-17 academic year, marking nearly a decade of leadership of the college.

One of the hallmarks of Tom’s presidency has been his deep commitment to Ithaca College. As Tom has pondered the appropriate timing for retirement, he and the Executive Committee of the board have discussed the importance of succession planning to ensure we have an orderly process to select a new president. With Tom’s announcement, it is time to set that process in motion.

This timing will enable the board of trustees the necessary time to organize and execute a thoughtful and comprehensive search for my successor.
