On behalf of the Facilities team, it is my pleasure to share with the campus community a final pictorial update on construction projects and other important initiatives that were executed during the recent summer months.  My previous update on this subject in July detailed a mid-summer’s update on progress.  For those of you who were on campus for all or portions of the summer, I sincerely thank you for enduring the occasional dust, noise, and closed pathways/parking lots/roadways, etc.  Your patience has been greatly appreciated, and of great benefit to our ability to meet important construction deadlines.

Challenging times require our engagement in difficult dialogues about topics many of us may prefer to avoid. The increasing elusiveness of ‘truth’ makes the responsibility of engagement a greater challenge. Nevertheless, open discussions are essential to the never-ending pursuit of freedom and justice for All. To facilitate our conversation about a difficult truth, The Very Reverend Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas will speak on the Ithaca College campus on Thursday, September 26th beginning at 7:00 pm in the Emerson Suites. Her presentation, “The Soul of the Nation at a Time of White Nationalism,” will be followed by a question and answer period. We invite you to attend and encourage you to reserve this date on your calendar.
