We work with leaders in the global higher education community to advance and preserve knowledge, to improve teaching and learning through the use of digital technologies, and to help broaden access to higher education by reducing the cost while also improving student outcomes. We are passionate about the value of education and are driven to help our universities, colleges, and high schools become better, more affordable, and more effective, and to reach beyond these traditional walls to support learners everywhere.u003c/pu003enu003cpu003eIn two decades, we have launched some of the most transformative and widely used services in higher education:u0026nbsp; JSTOR, Portico, and Ithaka S R.u0026nbsp; In addition, ITHAKA recently entered into a strategic alliance with Artstor and furthers a number of Artstoru0026rsquo;s initiatives. Our 300 employees work closely with our user communities, day in and day out, to build and continuously improve upon these services, and to identify new opportunities to expand access to knowledge and learning. As a successful, growing organization in a demanding and dynamic environment, we challenge ourselves to retain an entrepreneurial spirit that pursues and embraces change.u003c/pu003enu003cpu003eITHAKA is headquartered in New York, New York with additional offices in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Princeton, New Jersey and provides legal oversight and services for Artstor, also located in New York, New York.

Our work across these services is highly valued in the global higher education community, and we cover our costs by collecting fees in exchange for the access, preservation, and research and consulting services we provide. That exerts a real discipline on our operations in that we must continually adapt to the needs of our audiences to be worthy of their support. Thousands of higher education and related institutions around the world are ITHAKAu0026rsquo;s primary financial supporters; their JSTOR participation fees provide 88% of ITHAKAu0026rsquo;s revenue. Our 99% renewal rate for JSTOR generates stable recurring income, alleviating the dependency on fundraising that many not-for-profits experience. Because the organizations share our commitment to our mission, we have the financial resources necessary to maintain a great work environment that encourages innovation and excellence.u003c/pu003e
