The spring of 2020 brought unprecedented changes to the Ithaca College learning environment. Faculty, staff, and students made the heroic leap to an all-online curriculum in a very short period of time. This shift brought many challenges and unexpected opportunities. To capitalize on lessons learned and to move from a model of emergency remote teaching to effective online learning for Fall 2020, we are offering a Summer Institute for faculty who wish to design their courses to flexibly meet the needs of the times, enhance their pedagogical and technological knowledge and skills, and offer students a cohesive and engaging learning experience.

Please help us reach our $500 goal to support local students/teachers.  

As COVID-19 led to school closures, Staff Council's Employee Engagement committee focused on what we might do to assist in some way. The Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI) helped us identify a funding request they had received that aligned with criteria we outlined:  A) Student/Education focused B) Supports remote/at home learning, and C) Art-related.

Since we started, some art supplies have already been distributed. With your help we can fulfill our goal to reach more students.  It only takes a minute to donate: weblink.donorperfect.com/IPEIIC2020. Any amount ($5 or whatever you are able to give) is truly appreciated.

Consider a donation as a graduation gift to honor a student or as an end of year gift to honor their teacher.  Any/all gifts will be used to support grant requests.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

This week Hierald Osorto, Director of Religious and Spiritual Life, chose cultivating justice as our theme. Hierald will share "Sorrow is Not My Name" a poem by Ross Gay and "Ella's Song" by Sweet Honey in the Rock as our song. Together, we'll light a candle, share in silence, music and text, reflect in small groups, and receive a blessing.
