A message from President Shirley M. Collado and Board Chair Dave Lissy ’87

Dear Ithaca College community,

On Thursday, May 14, and Friday, May 15, the Ithaca College Board of Trustees convened for its first-ever virtual meetings, due to the ongoing public health crisis. Though we — like all of you — successfully conducted our important business in a remote environment, we sincerely missed this IC community and the many opportunities our on-campus board meetings deliver for us to connect with you, including the major highlight of our spring meetings: the college’s Commencement ceremony and celebrations. We wish the very best to our graduates in the Class of 2020, and look forward to being on South Hill again soon. We hope all of you reading this are staying safe, healthy, and IC strong.
