A warm welcome to spring semester at RIT is in order, as we’ve been experiencing nearly record-level wind chills and frosty conditions on campus during our first intersession. I want to take a moment to acknowledge our intrepid students, faculty and staff, who have braved snow, sleet and ice to keep things running smoothly during the past month. I hope that despite the Polar Vortex, your January has been filled with productive opportunities to conduct research and scholarly activities, participate in creative endeavors, or engage in one of the many professional development opportunities on campus.
In this monthly message, I will share some upcoming changes to my campus communications as well as some upcoming awards and events. I hope that spring semester is invigorating, and fruitful, (and hopefully, warm!) for you and our students, and look forward to an exciting time of year on campus as we embark on our first spring semester.
