Opportunity to Serve as a Student Member on the Ithacare Board

Ithaca College has had a programmatic partnership with Longview – An Ithacare Community for the past 20 years.  Longview is a retirement community located on Danby Road not far from campus.  It is run by the Ithacare Center Service Company, Inc.

 As part of the partnership between Ithaca College and Longview, a student board member position was created for the Ithacare Board a number of years ago.  This was created to provide a student with an educational and leadership opportunity and to encourage student input into aspects of the Board function that touch on the IC/LV Partnership.  There will be an opening for a student member for the academic year 2019-2020.


This position involves a one year commitment from June 2019 (students are invited, but not required to attend the June meeting) through April 2020 with attendance at Board meetings which are held every other month on Friday mornings from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.  The first meeting the student member would attend would be in September.  These meetings are usually held on the 4th Friday of the month and the student member would attend in September and November 2019 and February and April of 2020.  Academic schedules are always a potential issue, but should there be a course conflict with any of the meetings, it is assumed that the student will contact the professor in question and request an excused absence from the class.

In addition to the Board meetings, it is anticipated that the student representative would also participate on at least one Board committee. These committees, which generally meet monthly, are subgroups to the board and address a variety of issues.  The committees are: Finance; Long Range Planning; Personnel; Development and Community Relations; and Program.
