The Ithaca College administration has been inconsistent throughout this semester, and its intentions are often unclear.
Ithaca College President Shirley M. Collado updated the campus community via email Feb. 17 about the discussions that occurred at the annual Ithaca College Board of Trustees meeting Feb. 12–13.
The Strategic Planning Committee co-chairs held a forum with local community members April 1 to get input from members of the community.
In light of this shift in the type of feedback the committee is requesting, the campus community should be aware that the strategic plan is hitting a crucial point in its development process.
Rather than merely voicing our grievances to one another and posting on social media, students should voice their concerns to people who are actually capable of making change on our campus.
Students have the opportunity to offer their input on what they want their degree to mean. The option is there. The challenge is not to be hesitant to take that opportunity.
Approximately 30 students learned about the new strategic planning process for Ithaca College and voiced their hopes and concerns about the strategic plan at an All Student Gathering held Oct. 1.
