Last Thursday, Ithaca College partnered with Cornell University on a pair of events that exemplified the shared goals of the crosstown institutions.
At noon, Cornell hosted IC President Shirley M. Collado at its first Soup and Hope event of 2019. At the noontime series, the Sage Chapel audience is served a free soup lunch as well as some hope and inspiration, warming bodies and minds. Collado stressed the importance of diverse educators sharing their own stories in leading authentic lives on campus and in their communities.
“Remember the centrality of young people in our community and how you intersect in their lives,” she urged. “Not just the students at Ithaca College and Cornell University and TC3, but in our entire community. We must commit to setting an example, to modeling gratitude, grace and faith, to being bold enough and present enough to live and lead with authenticity and courage."
