Park Center Dedication Ceremony
On April 24, 2008, members of the School of Business and the IC community came together to dedicate the business school's new home, the Dorothy D. and Roy H. Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise.
Business school alumnus Lee Bird '86, president of Nike Affiliates, gave the keynote address. He spoke on Nike's innovative approach to changing the corporate responsibility paradigm. After that, guests gathered in the Park Center atrium to formally dedicate the new building. The Ithaca Brass provided a rousing fanfare, followed by remarks from School of Business dean Susan West Engelkemeyer, Ithaca College president Peggy Williams, and Larry Alleva '71, chair of the recently concluded Campaign for Ithaca College: Making a World of Difference.
Earlier in the day, associate professor of legal studies Marlene Barken moderated "Sustainability in Action," the third annual student-faculty colloquium, during which business students and professors discussed topics such as climate change, the link between sustainability and financial performance, and microenterprise in Ecuador.
