Ithaca College views academic excellence as the integration of theory, practice, and performance. The College’s unique fusion of the liberal arts and professional programs assumes that knowledge needs to inform and be informed by hands-on experience, real-life application, and concrete action. Curricular and co-curricular activities should provide all community members with opportunities to develop, debate, and critically evaluate strategies to address complex problems.
