RIT’s Innovation and Creativity Festival is coming up on Saturday, May 7

Imagine an event that showcases the wide array of talent, skills and innovation - exhibited by the RIT community.  Imagine thousands of people coming to this event.  Imagine the RIT campus alive with the sights sounds and smells of a community festival.  This was Dr. Destler’s dream just a few short years ago.  It is now a reality.

Jeanne Casares joined RIT in September 2008 as our Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Assistant Vice President in charge of Information and Technology Services (ITS).  With a campus the size of RIT, it can take time to get acquainted so I thought that everyone might like to hear more about Jeanne and where she hopes to take RIT regarding information technology.

Do you know what RIT Recreation has to offer?  The recreation facilities at RIT provide opportunities for a variety of activities.  Picture yourself taking a walk on the nature trails, enjoying a game of tennis, playing basketball or racquetball, going for a swim, working out in the fitness center, or relaxing in the sauna.  There is something for everyone!  All you need is your RIT ID for access, and you’re on your way to enjoying a healthy and active lifestyle.

Recently I sat down for an interview with Dr. James Watters, RIT’s Senior Vice President of Finance and Administration, to talk about the Better Me program that he’s championed since it was introduced to the RIT community in 2007. Better Me is an employee wellness initiative which aims to “create a culture of health and wellness” by providing health education and a variety of resources to faculty and staff. I asked Dr.

So why should I join Staff Council?

That’s the question I asked Steve Schwab 6 years ago. Steve was the corporate relations director at that point, he was my peer in development and a Staff Council member. He said that I would have the chance to meet many people at RIT I would never come across in my day-to-day job and I would get a great view of what is going on at RIT. I trusted Steve so I went for it and he was right. I have met really great people from departments I did not know existed: First Year Enrichment, Building Services, Risk Management – who knew?
