COACHE is a research initiative that gathers benchmarking data on best practices for faculty recruitment and retention. In fall 2012, RIT participated the COACHE survey and we will repeat the process in 2015-2016. Visit the COACHE website to learn more, including results from the 2012 survey.

Spring 2016 Opportunities

This orientation will introduce you to a wealth of information that will help you quickly adjust to the RIT classroom and our student population. All adjunct faculty are welcome.

The academic world poses career challenges and transitions for faculty and administrators alike. Many transitions are imposed rather than self-directed. The ability to be highly career self-directed is the focus of this workshop. Participants will create a customized career guide through exercises that lay a blueprint for today and beyond.  All RIT faculty are welcome.

Join your colleagues at the 5th Annual Mid-Tenure Review panel discussion where you can ask questions about requirements for mid-tenure review and learn about this important process from faculty who have served on tenure committees and may have been recently tenured.  All faculty are welcome; focuses on tenure track faculty.

Come and enjoy light refreshments in an informal setting (individual demonstration tables) as you mingle with faculty and staff from RIT and other institutions who have published journals, conference proceedings, and textbooks on open access platforms.  All RIT faculty are welcome.

Multimedia projects allow students to combine different types of media (text, audio, video, pictures, graphics, etc.) into a single cohesive presentation. They offer an opportunity for students to actively engage in a project in a way that is relevant and familiar to how they gather and understand information already.  Join our guest presenters and your fellow adjuncts for a demonstration highlighting RIT student project examples and a review of the tools to create them. All adjunct faculty are welcome.

Fall 2015 Opportunities
