RIT’s ASL and Deaf Studies Community Center (RADSCC) has relocated to the first floor of the Wallace Center. The RADSCC is a place where faculty, staff, and students can gather to learn about Deaf culture, Deaf heritage, and American Sign Language (ASL). The Center serves as a resource for community, national, and international outreach activities that enrich and celebrate the talents and achievements of the Deaf community. In addition, the RADSCC supports advocacy and education for Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing individuals.

One of the initiatives for the fall is the continuation of the Wegmans Healthy Blood Pressure Program. This program combines blood pressure screenings with mini consultations to help employees understand their blood pressure number and lifestyle factors that can affect it. The screenings take place on campus or at any Wegmans Pharmacy and are confidential.

Have you heard about RIT's proposed energy policy? John Moore (FMS) recently gave a presentation to Staff Council regarding the proposed policy and answered many questions about heating, cooling and energy use on campus. The full proposed policy includes heating, cooling, lighting power and water-saving strategies for the entire campus and is attached for your review.

NTID Campus Footprint Expands

Story Photo

After nearly two years of construction, one of the year’s most impressive building additions to the RIT campus is open. Sebastian and Lenore Rosica Hall, a new 23,000 sq. ft. research and innovation center located on the east end of M-lot and connected to the Shumway Dining Commons, is the first facility in the world that will specifically engage deaf and hard-of-hearing students and their hearing peers, along with faculty and corporate partners, in the innovation process. Faculty and staff moved into the building late last month.

Wetlands and RIT, Can’t We Just Build Anywhere?

By David Armanini Whether you’ve worked at RIT for decades or are a freshman student, one aspect of the campus environment that is blatantly obvious is that more and more buildings are being constructed.  The continued growth of RIT from a program and facility standpoint has positioned this university into a national player, gaining greater respect with each laid brick.

Staff Appreciation Day & Community Picnic 2013 - Stats and Photos

RITchie the Tiger

Yet another fun filled Staff Appreciation Day & Community Picnic!

Around 1850 people attended the picnic; 600 pounds of meat was served; and we went through 300 pounds of potato salad!

We hope that everyone enjoyed their time away from the office, a delicious lunch, and the opportunity to sit back and mingle with others. The long lines for ice cream and the photo booth demonstrated their popularity. We really hoped you enjoyed the Segway rides and Magic Guy too. We were glad the weather cooperated for Bob Howie Memorial Classic Car Display.

Your Role in Student Retention

Over the years I have heard some staff members say that they wished they could play a bigger role in RIT's retention efforts. I'm always surprised that many staff don't acknowledge the role they play everyday just by fulfilling their basic job responsibilities. Whether it's ensuring that a maintenance request is completed quickly and efficiently or offering a simple 'thank you' when a student is purchasing their lunch.
