It is with a great deal of sadness that I inform the campus community of the sudden passing due to a medical emergency Friday morning of Richard Rainville, a lecturer in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures in the School of Humanities and Sciences.

Rick’s ties to Ithaca College go back nearly 30 years. He taught in the department from 1990 to 2003, and returned to IC in a part-time capacity teaching Spanish courses last spring. He was a passionate and engaged teacher with an infectious enthusiasm and deep knowledge of pedagogy. Rick was also eager to pass on his love of teaching to our students, both by training teaching assistants in the modern languages department and by serving as the student teacher supervisor at Ithaca High School. His love of the college and his commitment to its educational mission is also evident in the active service roles that he played over the years. During his time on the faculty, Rick was a dedicated member of the department and college, serving on numerous committees, contributing to the enhancement of the curriculum across the school, and meeting with prospective students.
