The Search for the Next President of Ithaca College

Ithaca College president Tom Rochon announced in January 2016 that after much reflection over the college’s winter break, he has decided to retire effective July 1, 2017.

The Ithaca College Board of Trustees launched a national search for the college’s ninth president. The board retained responsibility for choosing the next president, but committed to an inclusive search process with a search committee composed of trustees, faculty, students, and staff that solicited input from the campus community and alumni.
