President La Jerne Terry Cornish
Ithaca College President La Jerne Terry Cornish leads at a dynamic time of progress and possibility. With an emphasis on intentionality, connection, and the creation of a community of care, President Cornish focuses her leadership on the creation of an uncompromising student experience in service of the college’s mission to “educate, engage, and empower through theory, practice, and performance.”
“The Ithaca College community, like every other community around the world, is populated by a beautiful, wonderful, array of people, each bringing their individual personalities, prejudices and biases. It is our collective responsibility, as citizens of this community and as citizens of the world, to understand and recognize these differences - but not judge anyone for them, not disenfranchise anyone for them and not discriminate against anyone for them.”President La Jerne Terry Cornish
