Each year, Ithaca College is proud to honor our faculty and staff who are celebrating an anniversary milestone or retirement. This is a particularly poignant time as we are unable to celebrate in person, however, we still want to recognize the many contributions and achievements of our committed faculty and staff who reflect the heart and soul of our beloved college.  Special thanks goes to those who are retiring, which is a larger number than usual this year given these unprecedented circumstances. We are saying farewell to so many who have dedicated decades of service to this institution. The legacy you are leaving both in and outside the classroom will continue to live on. We will miss you and we hope to welcome you back to college events once the campus reopens.
