Contributed on behalf of Tom Grape ’80, chairman of the Board of Trustees

Dear Ithaca College Community,

It gives me great pleasure to announce the members of the search committee for Ithaca College’s ninth president. The committee represents the wide breadth of our Ithaca College community and possesses a rich diversity of experience and perspective. We are deeply grateful that these individuals have agreed to devote their time and wisdom to collaborating on the important process that lies ahead, and we are confident that the college is in very good hands.

Serving on the committee are:
Chair, Jim Nolan ’77, Trustee
Christy Agnese, ’06, Staff Trustee
Michael Battle ’77, Trustee
Donathan Brown, Faculty
Diane Gayeski ’74, Dean
Claire Gleitman, Faculty
Tom Grape ’80, Trustee and Board Chair
Michele Hau ’18, Student
Andrew Kosinuk ’06, Staff
David Lissy ’87, Trustee and Board Vice Chair
Ciara Lucas ’17, Student Trustee
Kristin Muenzen ’00, Alumni Trustee
Gabi Starr, Trustee
Thomas Swensen, Faculty
Kurt Wolfgruber ’72, Trustee

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to thank the Executive Committees of the Faculty Council and Staff Council, and Executive Board of the Student Government Association, for the thought and care that went into their selections of nominees from their constituencies. They delivered excellent candidates who represent the very best ideals of the college, and we are grateful for their collaboration.

Brief biographical notes on each of the committee members have been posted to the presidential search website.

The board is currently in the process of interviewing its final choices for the search firm that will guide our process, and we expect to announce our decision in the very near future. Once we have the firm in place, they will help us shape the remainder of the process, including how and when the search committee will collect input from our on-campus and off-campus communities.

We look forward to sharing additional details with you soon. In the meantime, we hope that you will join us in thanking the members of the presidential search committee for their willingness to serve the Ithaca College community in such a deeply important role.

Tom Grape ’80
Chair, Ithaca College Board of Trustees
