(The following message is being posted on behalf of Dr. Timothy Carey, Associate Vice President, Facilities)

Colleagues: 
In late May, I shared the list of projects and initiatives that the Facilities Department was planning to execute during the summer months.  I am now pleased to provide a pictorial update on many of the more significant initiatives.  As noted in my first message, Facilities strives to provide first-rate service while simultaneously executing projects during the compacted summer constructions season so that the academic year instructional program is not adversely impacted by noise, dust and other inconveniences associated with these kinds of efforts.  For those of you who are on campus during all or portions of the summer months, I sincerely thank you for your patience as we work to improve your campus.

As you pass by any of the AED cabinets on campus, you’ll notice something new: a bright gold sticker labeled, “Naloxone.” Naloxone (brand name, “Narcan”) is a safe, over-the-counter medication that can reverse the life-threatening effects of an opioid overdose. Two doses of naloxone nasal spray, along with instructions for use, are now available in every AED cabinet on campus. This is one of a series of measures spearheaded by the IC Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Prevention Team as part of our newly launched Opioid Overdose Prevention Initiative.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education has given its formal stamp of approval to Ithaca College’s reaccreditation, marking the end of a nearly three-year process. The decision confirms the report made by a peer review team that visited the college in February, finding that IC meets all seven of the standards for accreditation.

“The visiting team affirmed a number of elements of our self-study and recognized many of our institution’s strengths, including our commitment to affordability, diversity, and sustainability; our commitment to free expression; our approach to facilities planning; and our inclusive board structure,” said Ithaca College President Shirley M. Collado.
