HANDS OF HOPE PROJECT
MLK Week, January 24-29

The Hands of Hope Project encourages all IC community members to start thinking about how YOU plan to affect change on local and global levels.  Paper hands will be available during MLK Week so that these commitments can be written down and displayed as part of a campus-wide art project.  Look for these Hands of Hope stations in the Campus Center during MLK Week and at each MLK Week event (listed below) -- and start thinking about how you want to address the fierce urgency of now in the new year!

This year's MLK Week theme is "Addressing the Fierce Urgency of Now," derived from a speech by Dr. King entitled Beyond Vietnam—A time to Break Silence, delivered April 4, 1967.

Important 2011 Tax Update

Contributed by Donna Veres on 01/04/11 

Effective with the first paycheck of 2011 (January 7 for non-exempt staff and January 14 for exempt staff), you will notice a change to your Federal tax withholding and your Social Security tax withholding.

In December, President Obama signed the Tax Relief Act of 2010. This act reduces the employee’s portion of social security tax from 6.2% to 4.2%. However, the Making Work Pay Credit which was a $400.00 a year reduction in Federal Income taxes for most employees expired on December 31, 2010.   As a result you will see less Social Security tax withheld and more Federal Income tax withheld.   For more information please visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov.

 Please feel free to contact the Payroll Office at (607) 274-3874 or (607) 274-3133 with any questions.

On Friday, January 7th beginning at 4:00 pm, Information Technology Services staff will be replacing the servers that host the college's main Web pages and many related Web services.

If such problems do occur, we will "cap" the downtime at a maximum of one hour.

The following major Web services will be affected:
