Submitted on behalf of Mark Coldren, AVP for Human Resources

The Ithaca College Winter Holiday Break will include Monday, January 2, 2012 as a paid holiday for employees.  The College Holiday Calendar that was previously communicated did not include 1/2/12 as an identified paid holiday.  This day off is part of the original Winter Holiday Break schedule that was developed by creating scenarios based on what day of the week Christmas falls during a given year.  Human Resources made a mistake when sharing the calendar with the campus community.  We apologize for any confusion or difficulty for employees planning their time off during the Winter Holiday Break.  The College will reopen for business on Tuesday, January 3, 2012.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mark Coldren at 274-3853 or at

The Department of Education invites you to register for our new spring course to be taught by our Predoctoral Diversity Fellow, Eric Hamako.
