The Search for the Next President of Ithaca College

On July 8, 2021, President Shirley M. Collado announced her decision to depart Ithaca College. With this news, the board of trustees announced that Provost and Executive Vice President La Jerne Terry Cornish has been appointed interim president of Ithaca College, effective Aug. 30, 2021. Dr. Cornish will serve in this position for the entirety of the 2021-22 academic year. President Collado will assume the role of senior advisor to the interim president and the board of trustees through Dec. 31, 2021.

The Ithaca College board of trustees is launching a national search for the college’s tenth president. The board is charged with the responsibility of choosing the next president, but they are committed to an inclusive search process with a search committee composed of trustees, faculty, staff, students and alumni with solicited input from the college community.

Information and updates from the board and the IC Presidential Search committee will be posted to this site.
