Work/Life: It's About You!

Ithaca College believes in the integration of work and life outside your career. The “It’s About You” work/life initiative is designed to help you! We define work/life as education, programs, policies, practices, and services that provide connections between individuals and the College, including

  • Flexibility
  • Wellness
  • Family Care
  • Individual Growth & Development, and
  • Community Service.

"It's About You" resources and programs are developed with one or more of the above components in mind and result in offering our employees the following:

  • An Employee Assistance Program
  • Flexible Work Arrangements
  • The Mind, Body, Me Wellness Program
  • Monthly Work/Life Workshops
  • Informational Campaigns
  • A Work/Life blog
  • And more!

Often, we are able to collaborate our programs with individuals and classes on-campus to enhance our offerings to faculty and staff. These collaborations include:

  • Work/Life Distinguished Faculty Series (IC Faculty Presentations)
  • Work/Life Esteemed Staff Series (IC Staff Presentations)
  • Nutrition Classes (Health Science/Nutrition Seniors & Julia Lapp)
  • Ergonomics Website (OT Graduate Students, Mark Ross, Andrea Clark)
  • Know 2 B Well Workshop Series (HPPE Graduate Students & Srijana Bajracharya) 

Here at Ithaca College, we are Working for Wellbeing and will continue to expand our Work/Life resources and programs to meet the needs of our employees!
