Donna Dickson has been named RIT’s director of faculty success. In her new role, Dickson will support faculty scholarship and professional development, ranging from preparation for tenure review to preparing research for publication. She will begin her new position March 8.
“I’ll be collaborating with the staff of the Wallace Center to provide more centralized services for all faculty toward teaching and student success. We’ll break the mold in how faculty are supported in the university environment,” she says.
Dickson had served as assistant professor in the human resource development master’s program in the College of Applied Science and Technology since 2003. Prior to this, she was the assistant director of part-time studies and taught on an adjunct basis. She has been with RIT since the early 1980s, working in the offices of development and cooperative education and placement. She has presented at international conferences on topics related to human capital management and employee engagement and has been nominated multiple times for excellence in teaching at RIT.
