Members of the Ithaca College Board of Trustees were introduced to some of the innovative and collaborative work being done by the president’s fellows and seed grant awardees at one of a series of immersion sessions during the board’s winter meeting. Held on Friday, Feb. 15, the hour-long session showed board members the results of two signature initiatives of President Shirley M. Collado’s first year at Ithaca College.
Similar sessions were also held with the Roy H. Park School of Communications, the School of Business and the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance. Sessions with the School of Humanities and Sciences and the School of Music were held during the board’s October 2018 meetings. The sessions gave board members an opportunity to expand their interaction and collaboration with the campus community.
At the session on presidential initiatives, seed grant awardees and president’s fellows set up tables to demonstrate their projects, and trustees divided into groups to spend a few minutes learning about each of them. Trustee Orinthia Montague, president of Tompkins Cortland Community College, said that the event would help the board better serve the campus community.
