Welcome to the Ithaca College Family Council!

On behalf of the Ithaca College Family Council (ICFC), we would like to extend a warm "Ithaca Welcome" to all new and returning families! Families and caregivers are key support systems for students as they navigate the successes and challenges of college. The ICFC was created in 2020 to assist families in finding ways to be involved in their student's college experience.

Our Mission

We strive to facilitate programs, services, and information for new and continuing students and their families that inspire successful transitions, college engagement, student development, and Ithaca College Bomber community pride.

We invite you to explore the many ways that you can engage and support Ithaca College.


IC Family Council serves as a resource to students, their families, and alumni in areas of mutual interest, including careers, internships, externships, community service, and social engagement.

Communicate & Engage

IC Family Council fosters a sense of community amongst parents, school leadership, and supporters of students and alumni through various communication opportunities.


Support IC in nurturing a tradition of family giving through the Ithaca College Annual Fund, which supports financial aid, learning and teaching, student life, and Ithaca College athletics.

Visit the Ithaca College Giving site for more on how your generosity can make a big impact!
