Getting Involved

Parents Committee

The President's Associates Parents Committee is comprised of talented and dedicated parents who make a direct impact on the student experience at Ithaca College and serve as ambassadors to other IC parents. The committee accomplishes its mission through fundraising and outreach efforts, including soliciting unrestricted gifts from other parents to support and maintain Ithaca's excellence.

The most successful committee members have previous experience with fundraising and are comfortable asking others for gifts; they strongly embrace the mission of the IC Annual Fund; and they are comfortable acting as ambassadors for Ithaca. Committee members also mentor students by offering internships and hiring graduating students. In addition, parents who serve on the committee have opportunities to interact with members of the faculty, the deans, and the senior leadership of the college.


To learn more about the committee or to nominate yourself as a member, contact Eric Rosario, interim director of family giving, at (607) 274-1396 or
