Picture more flexibility in our views about scholarship

March 4, 2014

One of the best decisions I made this year was to purposefully visit as many academic departments as I could fit into my schedule during the academic year. I have delighted in the conversations and getting to know many of the incredibly hard-working and dedicated faculty and staff we have here at RIT. Much of the conversation has centered on the semester conversion but there have been great discussions on topics such as promotion, bureaucratic paperwork, work overload, and scholarship.

"… an amazing part of my break."

Love is a potion mixed up by careless fools
And it takes two and it takes two
Love isn't certain, it comes right out the blue
And when she casts her spell, there's nothing you can do
- Sub Focus, "Out the blue"

I'm learning that sometimes a posting can just fall out of the blue and onto your lap. Here's a delightful email passed onto me from Alla Bailey who taught an innovative course during the intersession. 

Thanks, Alla, for your pioneering effort!

"Good news, everybody" 

-- The professor from Futurama

Quirky and gifted. These words keep coming up in discussions we have with the Strategic Planning Steering committee to describe our students. Quirky, well, that's just the RIT way and who doesn't want to be a bit quirky anyway. But gifted isn't something you just say you are, nor is it a characteristic you learn—it is unsurprisingly a result of some gift you've been imbued with.
