The "Power" Reception is a special welcome event for new faculty that includes remarks from RIT's President David Munson and Provost Jeremy Haefner and an opportunity for our newest faculty cohort to promote conversations and connections with deans, their administration team, and other key RIT people who "make things happen."
Annual Faculty Grants
Faculty present a summary of their projects and share what they have been able to accomplish with grants provided by Faculty Career Development and the Provost. Grant opportunities are announced each fall semeste for the academic year.
Faculty Career Development hosts an annual presentation and panel discussion that includes an overview of the RIT tenure process held early in the spring semester. Pre-tenure faculty learn about this important process from experienced faculty who have served on tenure committees or may have been recently tenured. Learn more here.
"The topics discussed at New Faculty Orientation were well chosen. I was very interested in just about everything people had to say. Everyone was very friendly, everything went smoothly, and I felt included. Most of all, it made me very excited to begin teaching at RIT."
