Rebecca is delighted to be a part of the vibrant and talented Ithaca College community. A Rochester native, Rebecca is a proud graduate of SUNY Geneseo and St. John Fisher College, where she received her graduate degree in Mental Health Counseling. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Rebecca's professional work is rooted in community mental health services, and she has worked extensively as a therapist with youth, adults, and families. 

Rebecca and her husband relocated to the Ithaca area in 2016, drawn to the area's community-oriented focus, natural beauty, and extensive homemade ice cream offerings. Rebecca joined the Ithaca College team as Program Director for Case Management in 2019. She is honored to have the chance to work with brilliant professionals across all divisions of the college and is continually awed by the resilience and kindness of Ithaca College students. Often introduced to students in high-stress circumstances, Rebecca values the opportunity to connect with students, to understand their perspectives, and to navigate challenging situations together in a collaborative partnership.

When time allows, Rebecca seeks opportunities to immerse herself in IC's culture, whether it be chaperoning students at Cortaca, attending campus events, or popping up in places where delicious food is available. Outside of work, Rebecca enjoys photography, attempting to keep the flowers in her garden alive, and talking to anyone who will listen about her beloved dog, Penny.

Christine Wlosinski

Program Coordinator, She/Her

Chris joined Ithaca College in June 2018 as the Program Coordinator in the Office of Case Management. A proud Delawarean, Chris received her Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education from Millersville University and a Master’s Degree in Education from Plymouth State College. After serving 7 years as an elementary special education teacher in Lancaster, PA, Chris moved into higher education and discovered her true passion, which is assisting young people in reaching their full potential. In her current role, Chris coordinates the ICare Referral process which supports students experiencing difficulty in some area of their lives. She also oversees the Leave of Absence and Withdrawal process for the college and serves as a co-advisor to the Ithaca Ambassadors. 

In her free time, Chris enjoys cooking, kayaking, paddle boarding and hiking with her rescue dog Montana, aka “Monty” and “Taners”. Unfortunately, Monty does not like the water and gets left ashore when she is out on the lake. Chris spent many summers in Bethany Beach, DE and gets back there to vacation with family as often as possible.

What does the Office of Case Management do?

It is very common for students to experience difficulty at some point during their college career perhaps related to academic pressures, personal issues, or physical/mental health problems. Case management services are offered to help students safely and effectively navigate such challenges and stay on the path towards academic success.

A student can be referred to case management services by faculty/staff, family, or a fellow student when they have concerns for a student's well-being. Students can also self-refer and contact the case manager directly in order to access support and assistance. The case manager is a member of the ICare Team and may provide assistance to a student who is the subject of an ICare referral.

The case manager may help a student:

  • Identify and problem solve barriers to academic and personal success.
  • Assess the type of assistance and resources needed.
  • Explore personal strengths, self-care and wellness strategies.
  • Develop or strengthen their support system.
  • Navigate and access on- and off-campus resources.
  • Stay on track with identified goals.
  • Overcome obstacles in accessing help.
  • Transition back to campus after a medical leave of absence, hospitalization, or difficult life circumstance.
  • Proactively address problems/stressors to avert more serious difficulties.
