Singled Out

RIT experts and their media attention

On linking company performance and personal paychecks
"It's the best kind of reward because it makes good, common sense," said Janet Barnard, RIT professor of management, in the Baltimore Sun story, "If Company Thrives, So Do Paychecks."

On developing 'eco-parks' to recycle industrial wastes
"It won't be a major trend until people see more good examples," said Nabil Nasr, director of RIT's National Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery, in The New York Times story, "Turning Industrial Waste Into Profit."

On childcare opportunities
"Tragically, changing family norms have not been matched with the development of accessible, affordable and quality care for children," said Virginia Costenbader, director, RIT's School Psychology Program, in the Chicago Tribune opinion piece, "Can Supermoms Get Some Relief, Please?"

On teaching ethics across the disciplines
"The minimal aim is to make a student see the ways ethical issues permeate their discipline. It's not that students are unethical. They just don't think about it. We're not doing well by students if we don't get them to the point where they at least are aware of these issues," said Wade L. Robison, RIT's Ezra A. Hale Professor in applied ethics, in the Democrat and Chronicle story, "RIT Mixes the Study of Ethics In All Majors."

On the Tuition Assistance Program
"Our higher education system is an unparalleled economic development asset that helps attract and retain business and industry. TAP is an efficient and effective mechanism for encouraging students to stay in the state," said Deborah Stendardi, RIT associate vice president for University Relations in the Democrat and Chronicle opinion piece, "Aid to Private College Students Aids N.Y.'s Economy."

On changes within the print industry
"Legislative standards, like marriage, can lead to happiness and prosperity, but they also shut down other options for the future," said Frank Cost, associate dean of RIT's College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, in the Print and Graphics story, "The Digital Smart Factory: Toward a Brave New World of Printing."

On the Kinks and their Web sites
"This whole Internet thing just hasn't piqued Ray's [Davies] interest like it has Dave's [Davies]. But if I had to choose between Ray spending his free time working on his Web site or working on new recordings and projects, I'd choose the latter," said Dave Emlen, RIT systems analyst and owner of a Kinks' fan site, in The New York Times story, "Kinks Stars Carry Rivalry Online."

On the growing acceptance of women in aviation
"Flying is the most freeing, uplifting feeling. There is no reason to deny women that experience," said Jonona Young, RIT professor of chemistry in the Syracuse Herald Journal story, "Women's Roles in Aviation Soar."
