Theory, Practice, and Performance

Ithaca College views academic excellence as the integration of theory, practice, and performance. As a global destination for bold thinkers seeking to build thriving communities, our Center collaborates with campus and community partners to support experiential learning initiatives.  Whether it's merging entertainment with storytelling to create programs rooted in anti-oppression or having an intentional dialogue with student activists to capture their voices, there are countless opportunities across campus to learn and unlearn.
