 After an extensive selection process involving many faculty, students, and other stakeholders the feedback we received was overwhelmingly clear that Canvas is the best product to support teaching and learning at Ithaca College. Over the next two weeks we will be formulating an implementation advisory team to help guide the implementation process. Sakai will continue to be our LMS for the spring and Summer semesters while we are implementing Canvas for the fall semester. Additional details will be announced around the start of the spring semester.

 The IT team has been working for the past 4 months to prepare to replace a central component of the campus network that is at end of life.  While we are doing this work, the entire campus network will be unavailable.

The outage is expected to last about 5 hours from 7 AM to Noon on Monday, December 28th.

  • If you are on campus you will not be able to connect to anything, on or off campus.  This includes printing and the Internet.
  • If you are off campus or in a residence hall: You will be able to continue to access email and the rest of Office 365 services (including Teams), Zoom, Sakai (will be able to continue grading within Sakai), finance, HR, WWW website, internet.  You will not be able to access Homer (Registration Tools and Student Financial Services), DegreeWorks, IC Workflow, or any other on-campus hosted service.

 There are significant advantages in terms of accessing support resources doing this work during a weekday daytime hours.  Thank you.

 As a newly selected Davis United World College (UWC) Scholars Program partner school, Ithaca College undergraduate students are now eligible to participate in the Davis UWC Projects for Peace initiative.

Projects for Peace is an initiative for all undergraduate students currently enrolled at one of the participating Davis United World College Scholars Program partner schools (and a few other institutions) to design grassroots projects for the summer of 2021 - anywhere in the world - which promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties. Applicants are encouraged to use their creativity to design projects and employ innovative techniques for engaging project participants in ways that focus on conflict resolution, reconciliation, building understanding and breaking down barriers which cause conflict, and finding solutions for resolving conflict and maintaining peace. Projects will be selected for funding at $10,000 each.
