President Destler wants feedback from the RIT community. What are your thoughts on creating an Innovation Festival at RIT? How about a corporate R&D center on campus?

Destler plans to share his ideas and engage the RIT family through a series of videos entitled “Conversations with President Destler.” The videos will be available to view on the president’s Web site: He will also be visiting dozens of alumni chapters throughout the United States during the 2007-2008 academic year.

Destler became president of RIT on July 1. He is the ninth president in the university’s 178-year history. He was formerly senior vice president for academic affairs and provost of the University of Maryland at College Park.
