The Ithaca College/Longview Partnership: Opportunities for Campus Community Involvement
Ithaca College has had a successful programmatic partnership with Longview, a retirement community across the road, for the past 20 years. There are many opportunities for members of the Ithaca College Community to become involved at Longview.
Course Related Projects at Longview
Faculty members can involve their students at Longview through course related, and/or service learning projects. Intergenerational discussion groups, tours of Longview, recreational and social activities planned by students, and student presentations or performances held at Longview are all possibilities. Jessica Valdez Taves will work with faculty and students to identify options and to facilitate scheduling, promotion of programs, and recruitment of Longview participants.
On days that classes are in session there is a shuttle between Longview and the College in the morning, with stops at the Center for Health Sciences and Textor. This shuttle is available to members of both the Longview and Ithaca College Communities.
There are sometimes slight changes made to this schedule to accommodate for course related activities that require the transport of students to Longview. If the shuttle is canceled due to bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, a notice will be posted here.
