IC Welcomes a President

The inauguration of Shirley M. Collado as Ithaca College’s ninth president took place on Saturday, Nov. 4.

Activities throughout the weekend of November 3-5, 2017, a celebration of the college’s 125th anniversary, honored the college’s deep roots as a place where theory, practice, and performance spark innovation and collaboration. These included the inauguration ceremony itself, as well as the Conversation: Started symposium, and the Circle of Fifths literary and music event.
