Last week, the college held its 24th annual James Whalen Academic Symposium, and although it was held virtually, the breadth and depth of the Ithaca College undergraduate academic experience was still on display in full force. The Whalen Symposium, named after former president James J. Whalen, highlights research produced by undergraduate students under the guidance of faculty mentors.
In a pre-recorded message, President Shirley M. Collado thanked the students and faculty mentors for their hard work and dedication.
“To our students, thank you for asking the hard questions and for being so curious and for so boldly pursuing the answers,” she said. “To our faculty and staff who serve as mentors and volunteers and coconspirators, thank you for investing in our students and for contributing your knowledge and expertise to the creation of this learning and thriving community.”
