Fellows weekly lunch (7/6)

Wed, 07/07/2010 - 16:34 -- Anonymous (not verified)

This week, the fellows learned about an internal organization at RIT: The RIT Leadership Institute and Community Service Center.   The Center looks to promote leadership in students through a variety of ways.  They offer several courses, both 2 and 4 credit hours, with some being tied with specific colleges.  A series of workshops are available to aid in specific skills such as public speaking, business etiquette, and communication skills.  The Center also hosts a series of community service trips involving such organizations as Meals on Wheels, and Habitat for Humanity.

After the presentation, the Fellows participated in a team-based activity to highlight the collaborative process and discussed positive and negative experiences while working with a team.

Next week, Mark Henry, Senior Patent Strategist at Kodak, will present on intellectual property and it's implications on the Fellows research projects.
