 Applications are now being accepted for the Linden Award for Learning Portfolio Excellence. This award is open to seniors who best demonstrate through their learning portfolios what they have learned in their college experience and what connections they draw among different elements of their Ithaca College education, presented in a form that effectively communicates to an external audience.

This award recognizes electronic portfolios that tell the student’s story, creating a platform for future iterations as learning continues through life. Portfolios will exemplify integrative thinking, critical and analytical problem solving and reflective learning outcomes, as created by students who have sought guidance and mentoring from Ithaca College alumni. This award has been made possible by the generosity of Jay and Judith Linden. For the 2014-15 competition, three finalists will receive a cash prize, with $3,000 for the best portfolio and $1,500 for each of the two runners-up.
