This award is presented each year to a student who has made significant contributions to increasing the engagement of our incoming transfer students. Through dedication to the development of new initiatives and programs, this individual has enhanced the transfer student experience here at Ithaca College. The 2020 recipient is Connor Shea. Connor has worked to support transfer students throughout his time at IC as a transfer student senator and being a part of the transfer peer mentor program. While this program no longer exists in the same capacity, Connor consistently seeks out opportunity for incoming transfer students to be acknowledged and heard. Connor takes the time to collect feedback from his peers, share his story, and work to support new initiatives. He is passionate, creative, and an advocate for this community and it is an honor to present him with this award.
