Dean Kamen, Patricia Moore, Kevin Surace and the late Aileen Osborn Webb have something in common: They’ve made a global impact on society. Now the four will be inducted together as the third class of RIT’s Innovation Hall of Fame. Kamen (pictured) is an inventor, entrepreneur and the founder of FIRST Robotics; Moore, an RIT alumna, is an internationally renowned gerontologist and designer; Surace, an RIT alumnus, was Inc. magazine’s 2009 Entrepreneur of the Year; and Webb, founder of the American Crafts Council and the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, was instrumental in bringing the School of American Craftsmen to RIT.

The induction ceremony will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 4 in the University Gallery, James E. Booth Hall. This will be preceded by a panel discussion with the inductees at 3 p.m. in Webb Auditorium, James E. Booth Hall.
