The Department of Human Resources provides Rochester Institute of Technology with consultation and innovative solutions in the areas of recruiting, employment, benefits and compensation, employee relations, training and Affirmative Action. Recruiting, developing, rewarding and retaining a highly qualified workforce are essential for RIT to reach its highest goal -- in a "category of one."
Employee Assistance Program
To help employees and their families with personal problems-such as emotional, relationship or substance abuse problems - RIT provides an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through The Health Association.
To get the help they need, employees can call the EAP 24 hours per day, seven days per week. All counseling is provided on a confidential basis.
Staff Council is an advisory body to the President, or his/her representative, on issues and decisions which impact Rochester Institute of Technology. Our representatives solicit feedback from their constituents to inform the perspective of staff that we bring forward on University issues. Additionally, Staff Council initiates policy proposals and revisions, and raises issues for University consideration.
CARES! Campus Advocacy Response & Support
CARES is a program of the RIT Center for Women and Gender. A group of trained and dedicated volunteers are available 24-hours a day to respond to members of the RIT community that have been impacted by sexual assault, harassment, relationship violence and/or stalking.
A CARES team member is available to provide information, support and advocacy by phone and in person. An on-line reporting system is also available on The Center for Women and Gender's webpage.
The Ombuds Office is a resource open to assist any member of the RIT community seeking assistance with conflict management and conflict resolution.
Ethics and Compliance Hotline (Whistleblower)
RIT is committed to ensuring that our university community is governed in an ethical and honest manner, and that we are compliant with all applicable regulations. The Institute and its employees have a responsibility to follow a code of ethics that not only fulfills our stewardship obligations, but also exemplifies the ethics and behavior we expect of our students. Consistent with this responsibility, we have implemented an anonymous whistleblower system, the RIT Ethics and Compliance Hotline. This system will augment existing campus reporting options for financial, accounting and compliance related irregularities.
