Division of Finance and Administration

Janet Williams, Interim Vice President for Finance and Administration is Ithaca College's chief financial officer and provides administrative oversight to the offices of Auxiliary Services, Information Technology, Facilities, and Business and Finance, as well as providing support and direction for all of the College's financial endeavors.

We are committed to transparency and engagement across the campus of the finances and operations of the college. One of the ways we do this is through the monthly “Dollars and $ense” Discussion Series hosted by the Division of Finance and Administration for faculty, staff, and students to engage in and learn about current topics that have financial implications for the college.
