In-Person Courses

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
  • Report all crimes to Public Safety that students and employees share with you (Proxy reporting option)

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

Welcome to RIT! Our New Employee Orientation program is an exciting 2 day event to help acclimate new employees to our university!

In Day 1, you will participate in a detailed discussion surrounding the RIT core values, as well as learn some of RIT's exciting history! We will navigate the university's colleges and divisions, review and show you where to find essential information regarding RIT's institute policies and procedures, and answer any questions you may have. Day 1 concludes with RIT's Policy on Prohibiting Harassment and Discrimination, which is required for all RIT employees.

In Day 2, you will take the required Early Intervention Program Training, as well as RIT Compliance and Conflict of Interest Training. These two sessions are required for all RIT employees.

Please contact The Center for Professional Development Office at 5-6200 if you would like to register for these sessions.

Note: These are two day sessions, so you must attend the session on the second day at the same time.

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.
