Steven Mauk, emeritus professor of saxophone, has recorded 22 albums, written over 100 articles, authored four books, and taught and mentored countless students. He has presented lectures, master classes, and recitals throughout the US and in over a dozen foreign countries.

Before retiring in spring 2019 with 44 years of service at IC, he had been the longest-serving faculty member at Ithaca College. He was on several All-College committees, including the Buildings and Grounds Committee, the Educational Policy Committee, the Budget Committee, and the Institutional Advancement Committee and was also the faculty trustee on the Ithaca College Board of Trustees from 2001 to 2004. In the School of Music, he served as Interim Dean, Chair of Graduate Studies, and Performance Faculty Chair.

In fall 2018, Mauk’s wife, Judy Mauk ’69, daughter Jenna Reynolds ‘04, and many of their family, friends, and colleagues established the Steven Mauk Endowed Scholarship for Music in honor of his retirement. The scholarship is awarded to students with demonstrated financial need who are studying saxophone.
