Welcome to the RSC Web Site

Welcome! Staff Council is an advisory body to the President, or his/her representative, on issues and decisions which impact Rochester Institute of Technology. Our Staff Council Members communicate to staff about university news, events and initiatives and act as a conduit providing staff feedback and insights on university issues. Additionally, Staff Council initiates policy proposals and revisions, and raises issues for University consideration.

This site provides a wealth of information for the RIT community. It is our hope that you will join us at meetings, nominate a coworker for one of our awards, or offer suggestions for transforming RIT into the “Innovation University”. Most of all we want you to join your colleagues and get involved! All Staff Council meetings are open to all RIT community members.
 

Also, please help us share the news about staff success! We're always excited to help spread the word about RIT staff who receive awards - either internal or external - for their work at RIT.  If you or an RIT staff member you know has recently received recognition for his or her work, please email the Staff Council office at stafcoun@rit.edu to let us know so that we can share the news with the RIT community via the Staff Council blog.

Staff Council Executive Committee:
(Left to Right): Becky Kiely (Communications Officer), Lauren Shields (Chair), Hope Williams, Donna Black, Karen Ester, Kevin Wilson, Raman Bhalla (Vice Chair). Not shown: David Woodhams (Events Officer)

    With RIT consistently ranking in the top 15 largest private universities in the United States, our faculty and staff have endless opportunities to interact with students from all across the United States and other countries. Adding a social and educational dynamic not found at any other university are more than 1,200 deaf and hard-of-hearing students supported by NTID, the world’s first and largest technological college for deaf and hard-of-hearing students which has been part of RIT since 1968.

    RIT's Better Me Wellness Program shared an inspirational story about Charlie Velazquez who quit smoking last year. After having a health-related “wake up call,” Charlie requested assistance from the Better Me Wellness Program and the Quit for Life Program through Excellus. These programs put him on the path to a healthier lifestyle and gave him the support and resources he needed to succeed. You can read Charlie’s story from the PDF attachment below.

There's no magic pill that can turn you into Rocky Balboa, but there are ways to fit in a daily exercise routine and help make you accountable by tracking your workouts.
