Title

H&S Innovation Scholars Program

Scholars work on tangible solutions to real-world problems in a sequence of courses over three or four semesters.

In this program, you’ll work closely with faculty and your peers on scholarly and creative projects, participate in  a residential learning community (optional), and engage  with the local community. 

Apply to one of three programs:

REBUILD BETTER
Use the tools of architecture, history, and environmental science to learn about, experience, and intervene  in the emerging history of Ithaca,  New York. Join us as we discover  and transform the natural and social constructs that have shaped and reshaped our community.

MEANING IN MEDIA
How do messages in media perpetuate or challenge stereotypes and influence vulnerable populations? How can media be used to represent identity or argue for a particular  view of reality? How do our own biases and experiences influence our inter pretation of media? We will address these and other questions  as we consider how meaning is derived from media.

CULTIVATING ECO-FRIENDLY FOOD SYSTEMS
Explore the links between food systems and our social and physical environments, and engage with diverse perspectives to transform Ithaca College’s food system to enhance equity and access for all.
