Early Intervention is an important process for all members of our community to learn and understand. This training will help us promote a safer community for all on campus and will ensure that all members of our community will receive the care and attention they need to be successful at RIT.

The purpose of this training program is to raise our awareness as it relates to recognizing disruptive behaviors and the resources available to manage potentially dangerous situations.

This informative 1-hour session will outline the four steps in the early intervention process:

  • Recognize disruptive behaviors
  • Know what Resources are available
  • Refer students and others to services and providers
  • Reconnect to help keep the student engaged and in the community

This session is required for all members of the RIT faculty and staff community.

This course explains RIT’s Individual Conflict of Interest and Commitment policy, C4.0, and disclosure process that was approved by the university in 2007. This policy is designed to protect the integrity of the university, as well as faculty, staff, students and the scholarship process. This policy requires all regular RIT faculty and staff to disclose potential, real or perceived conflicts of interest or commitment annually to their immediate supervisor.

Although faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in this session, all supervisors are required to attend.  This session is part of New Employee Orientation.  If you are unable to attend a session listed below, contact The Center for Professional Development for additional session dates.
