RIT’s most recent career fairs drew more than 400 employers from throughout the United States and two foreign countries. Most universities are satisfied if they attract 100!
The Office of Graduate Education is here to help faculty and graduate students succeed in their programs of study, research and creative endeavors. We also look forward to helping graduate students develop novel partnerships among ourselves as well as with the community and the private sector. Throughout the year, our office sponsors workshops on career preparation, teaching, and grant writing for both students and faculty.
