A message from the Board of Trustees chair and the president.

Dear Campus Community,

On February 12 and 13, the Ithaca College Board of Trustees gathered in Los Angeles for its winter meetings. Periodically, the board plans one of its three scheduled annual meetings off campus in an effort to provide trustees with an expanded scope of opportunities that contribute to their understanding of the college and the IC experience.

Last week’s meetings delivered many such moments for the board, including a conversation with Bob Iger ’73 and a tour of ICLA, as well as informative and engaging discussions with members of the senior leadership team around the strategic plan implementation, our campus climate, capital planning and the budget for the coming fiscal year, and enrollment and marketing strategy.
