The mission of the Office of Government and Community Relations is to implement a comprehensive program of government relations, community relations and special events which develops and maintains positive and effective relationships between RIT and all levels of government as well as the community at large.
The Special Events office is the primary university contact for special events and conferences for both campus and external clients. We provide a "one-stop-shop" for event planning services that include: comprehensive event management; housing, dining, and catering arrangements; coordination of meeting space; facilities support and technical services.
