Membership

Platinum Level

With a financial commitment of $25,000 per year in support of the Cross-Media Innovation Center at RIT, Platinum Level Industry Partners benefit from the following:

Participation in the CMIC Industry Council

The applied research and development agenda is built through an intensive collaboration between Center researchers and representatives of Industry Partner companies. The Industry Council is the advisory group that is made up of CMIC Industry Partners at the Platinum and Gold Levels. At the annual CMIC Summit, a focused research agenda describing a number of specific research projects will be discussed, and Industry Partner representatives are asked for feedback. Each Platinum Level Industry Partner will have one vote on the annual plan of work that is developed from the outcome of this planning. The Industry Council will also identify issues throughout the year as input to the CMIC research and development agenda.

Student Co-op Program

The RIT Student Co-op Program is a unique opportunity for Platinum Level Industry Partners to benefit from a funded co-op experience at their companies. The Center funds the salaries of students from the RIT School of Media Sciences program for a full-time 10-week work position. Industry Partner companies receive a direct return on their support of the Center with the advanced skills and fresh perspectives of RIT students in the workplace. Co-op position openings are accepted on a quarterly basis.

Annual Strategy Review

Platinum Level Industry Partners will also receive a 2-hour strategy review from experts on the RIT faculty. This review will assess the market position and viability of Partner firm’s products and services and will be tailored to the specific business and technical emphasis of the firm.
