Message from the Assistant Dean of Graduate Student Success

Greetings!  My name is Rauncie Ryan and I am your Assistant Dean of Graduate Student Success.   As I enjoy the summer in Rochester I am already working on some programming to help you to be successful as a student in 2016/17.    We listened to your responses in our surveys and have added new workshops and this year will be recording workshops and making them available for our students out of the area.  If you have not attended any of our workshops I hope you will take the time to take a look at what we have to offer on our workshop page.    These workshops will help you as you progress through the year and beyond your time here at RIT.  If you have a suggestion for a workshop or have a skill you would like to share with other students please let me know.  I have an open door policy and welcome you to come by my office at any time. You can reach me at

You can read my blog here I will be posting about upcoming events and life at RIT as a graduate student.  Be sure and subscribe to the blog to hear about upcoming new events such as Graduate Game and Social Nights.  I look forward to working with you.   If you have any suggestions for how to create community here at RIT I would love to hear from you.
