RIT students, faculty and staff gathered for the first Gray Matter discussion for the semester on Sept. 15. Gray Matter is a discussion series designed to promote critical exploration of provocative topics related to higher education and the RIT campus community. The topic was “Failure, Fear & Fault? What’s Wrong with YOU?” and was co-sponsored by the Fram Chair for Applied Critical Thinking. The next conversation, “What Is RIT’s Official Opinion on Politics? ...and what if you disagree?”, is Sept. 22 in the MOSAIC Center.
