Dear campus community members,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of the members of the search committee for Vice President and General Counsel. The members of this search committee are:


Melissa Daly, Chief of Staff, Office of the President

Gwen Seaquist, Professor, School of Business


Steven Mauk, Professor, School of Music

Kip Opperman, Lecturer, School of Health Sciences and Human Performance

Cory Young, Associate Professor, Roy H. Park School of Communications


Doreen Hettich-Atkins, Director, Strategic Planning and Administration, Division of Student Affairs and Campus Life

Wendy Rizzo, Assistant Director, Office of Student Financial Services

John Sigg, Dean, School of Health Sciences and Human Performance


Zoe Mendrysa ’19

Ithaca College Board of Trustees

Jack Dembow ’77

The committee will begin its work with our search firm, Witt/Kieffer, next week. The Vice President and General Counsel search will be the final, planned administrative search to launch this academic year and we are aiming to complete this search by May. Search chairs Melissa Daly and Gwen Seaquist will be providing updates to the community as this search progresses.

As with the searches for Provost and for Vice President for Finance and Administration, you are invited to stay tuned to Intercom and the senior team searches website for more information in the weeks ahead.

I am deeply grateful for the work that all three of our search committees are doing on behalf of the college. This is an exciting time for IC as we set the course for our senior leadership team in the years ahead.

All my best,

Shirley M. Collado
