Dramatic changes in the demographics of the college-going population will make it more important than ever for RIT to continue its tradition of affordability and access. Increasing the amount of financial aid available to students will help us sustain and enrich the student diversity so necessary to the creativity and productivity of the university community. RIT is committed to leading the affordability charge by addressing price and student financial capacity, by ensuring ample financial aid to accommodate high-need students, and by introducing technological solutions to reduce costs while improving learning outcomes.
Recognizing that affordability is as much about quality outcomes as costly input, we will provide the next decade’s students with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in satisfying and remunerative careers that will justify the expense of undergraduate and graduate education. Our students’ return on their tuition investment will come not only in the material form of future earnings, but also in their ability to effect positive change, contribute to the social good, and continue on a path of lifelong learning.
