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 to let us know so that we can share the news with the RIT community via the Staff Council blog.

    We’ve tried to get our amazing students to create an app to end this wintry weather, but so far it doesn’t seem to be happening.  So, with the recent severe weather, many questions have been posed regarding why the campus hasn’t closed and what goes into the decision to remain open.  The University policy on closings, C19.0 can be found here.  Many factors are considered when deciding whether or not to keep the campus open and the process begins with Public Safety calling the AVP Global
