February 11, 2014

The Department of Communication has been awarded a CONNECT grant, part of the National Science Foundation-supported AdvanceRIT Program, to investigate best practices in post-tenure mentoring.  The $5,000 award will be used to compile an annotated bibliography of literature on post-tenure mentoring and work-life balance for women faculty, and to disseminate information on best practices through a website and presentations at RIT during the 2014-2015 academic year.  Patrick Scanlon, professor and chairman of the department, is the principal investigator.  This and other CONNECT projects will be highlighted at the AdvanceRIT Launch on Thursday, February 13 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the University Gallery, Booth Hall.
