Professional Development for RIT Advisors

The Center for Professional Development and the Institute Advising Office have collaborated with the RIT Advisors Council to offer an exciting series of professional development workshops for faculty and staff with advising responsibilities. These workshops will offer interactive opportunities to learn more about our students and RIT services to better support our advisees. All workshops will be facilitated by RIT professionals with expertise in the workshop topics.
