Welcome to the Office of Faculty Recruitment

News & Events

The Office of Faculty Recruitment was established in March 2002 to provide support, direction, and training to search committees conducting faculty searches. We also serve as a resource for minority and women doctoral students, and faculty interested in becoming an educator at Rochester Institute of Technology. Teaching, learning, scholarship, leadership development, and student success are the focus at RIT. Our current efforts are focused on expanding the pool of applicants by attracting underserved populations, chiefly African Americans, Latina/o Americans and Native Americans (AALANA) and women, to enrich our diverse educational community.


The mission of the Office of Faculty Recruitment is to build a relationship network with AALANA and women professionals and faculty. Every search committee will be provided with information to assist in finding AALANA and women for their pool of candidates.
