We hope this message finds you well as we continue to adjust to the evolving situation and seemingly endless snow.

As of today, 83 faculty and staff members have expressed interest in one or more of these options, and we have been working to answer their questions and share information relevant to their particular situations.

Dear Ithaca College Faculty and Staff,

In light of the changing world, we ask that you be very mindful of your purchasing and discretionary spending.  The Covid-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic crisis has impacted all of us personally and professionally, including the future of Ithaca College’s finances. The fiscal challenges that we are currently facing have been addressed in the variety of All-Staff, All-Faculty, and InFinty meetings; however, I wanted to reiterate it via intercom.

In normal circumstances, we would be meeting this morning for breakfast to celebrate the many contributions and accomplishments of our administrative professional staff.  

However, since we are unable to do so, I wanted to take a moment to express sincere gratitude on behalf of the senior leadership team and the campus community for all that you do to support Ithaca College. You provide the backbone of the structure that allows departments and schools to meet their various goals and missions, and often bear significant responsibility for keeping our educational and programmatic endeavors on track. You serve as skilled schedulers, gracious greeters, miraculous multi-taskers and masters of data who pay attention to the smallest details.
