Ithaca College President Shirley M. Collado announced the recipients of the 2018-19 president’s seed grants at the all-college gathering on Tuesday, Feb. 5. More than $73,000 was awarded to 13 teams to fund their projects, including a medicinal herb garden, an LGBTQ film festival and a guest speaker on analytics and data science.
The semiannual meeting also included updates on a new food pantry, the strategic planning process and senior leadership searches.
The President's Seed Grant Initiative was created in fall 2017 to provide a launch pad for original, cross-disciplinary collaborations that develop innovative ideas. The president selects the winning proposals in consultation with a committee of faculty, students and staff.
“Our seed grant projects, once again, show the wonderful creativity that lies within our college community,” Collado said.
