Over Spring 2024, Ithaca College witnessed multiple changes in leadership. The departure of some members will be followed by national searches that will commence in Fall 2024.

Quincy Davidson

Quincy Davidson served as the associate vice president for engagement at Ithaca College from March 2020 until April 2024. On April 16, Davidson’s departure was announced in an Intercom post which stated that Davidson would be leaving the college April 18 for another opportunity at Boston University. 

In the Intercom post, Laine Norton, vice president for philanthropy and engagement, thanked Davidson for his work over the past four years. 

“Over the past four years, Quincy has spearheaded initiatives that have significantly impacted the IC community,” Norton said. “Under his leadership, IC has seen increased giving to the IC Annual Fund, three robust Giving Days, and programming that has engaged alumni and donors across the country.”

Anne Hogan

Anne Hogan served as the first-ever dean of the combined School for Music, Theatre and Dance at Ithaca College. Hogan announced her departure from the school April 8 in an email to the campus community. 

“It has truly been an honor to serve as the inaugural dean of the School of Music, Theatre and Dance at Ithaca College, and to witness the talent, team spirit and commitment to ensuring an inspiring and transformative learning community that makes MTD so special,” Hogan stated in the email.

Hogan will continue to serve as the dean until the end of the academic year before taking on the role of the dean of the College of Performing Arts at Chapman University. 

Associate deans Steve TenEyck and Louis Loubriel will serve as interim deans while a national search is conducted during the Fall 2024 semester. 

Stanley Bazile

In an email to the campus community on April 4, President La Jerne Cornish announced that Stanley Bazile was selected as the next vice president of Student Affairs and Campus Life. 

“I consider a truly effective student-centered organization to be one that recognizes an individual’s life journey, acknowledges the realities of a student’s daily routine and the current state of the world, and then places that collection of experiences and situations into the context of the college community,” Bazile said in an IC News post.

Bazile has previously worked at institutions like St. John’s University and Penn State University over the past 25 years. Bazile has a Bachelor of Art from Stony Brook University as well as a Master of Social Work. Bazile also has a Ph.D in Educational Leadership from Penn State. 

Bazile will step into his new role on June 10, taking over for the current vice president of Student Affairs, Bonnie Prunty, who is set to retire at the end of the semester. 

Christina Moylan

On February 22, Melanie Stein, provost and senior vice president of academic affairs, announced in an email to the campus community that Christina Moylan would become the next dean of the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance.

Moylan has served as the interim dean of the School of Health Science since the beginning of the academic year after the retirement of Linda Petrosino ’78. Moylan is not new to the school, however. Before taking over as the dean, she served as associate provost for graduate and professional studies as well as director of public health emergency preparedness during the 2020–21 academic year

Lauren Goldberg

In an email on February 15, Hillel at Ithaca College announced the departure of Executive Director Lauren Goldberg. In the email, Goldberg stated that she was stepping down to spend more time with family. 

“This place is very special. … I just look forward to being able to take a step into my nuclear family life rather than my student family life. Both are so central to me,” Goldberg said to The Ithacan Feb. 15. 

Goldberg first stepped into her role as executive director seven years ago, bringing various activities and community-building events for Jewish students to the college. Goldberg will continue to serve as executive director until July. 

A search has begun for a new executive director of Hillel. Applications were being accepted until March 1, but no replacement has been named as of yet.

Paula Younger

On January 16, President La Jerne Cornish in an email to the Ithaca College community announced that Paula Younger would serve as the first executive director of government, community and constituent relations at the college. In the new role, Younger works to develop the college’s relationships with the local, state and federal governments. 

Younger is not new to Ithaca College, as she previously served as the executive director for government and community relations from 2018 until 2020. From 2021 up until the beginning of this year, Younger served as a lecturer and an executive-in-residence in the Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy at Cornell University. 

Rakin Hall

In an email to the Ithaca College community on Jan. 2, President La Jerne Cornish announced that Rakin Hall would serve as the next vice president of enrollment management. 

Hall graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and communications from Humboldt State as well as a master’s degree from the University of Southern California. He began his role as vice president on Feb. 1. 

Omar Stoute

In an Intercom post on Dec. 19, Kirra Franzese, associate vice president and chief Human Resources officer, announced that Omar Stoute ’18 was selected as the first director of Staff Equity, Inclusion and Belonging. 

Stoute is an alumni of Ithaca College, having graduated with a degree in communication management and design in 2018. Stoute also took on the role of Title IX deputy coordinator from February 2020 until January 2022. Stoute began his new role on Jan. 16.
