“Overall, 2007-2008 has been a very good recruitment year for RIT, ” says James Miller, senior vice president, Enrollment Management and Career Services. “With records established for undergraduate and graduate applications for admission, RIT was able to become more selective, to increase ethnic diversity in the entering class, increase the number and percentage of women, particularly in engineering, science and technology clusters, and meet goals of increasing visibility and enrollment of students from outside the mid-Atlantic and New England regions.
