"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."
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 Showcase
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. This fall event also serves as a kick off for grant opportunities for the academic year.
Provost Haefner provides an overview of the RIT tenure process at our annual panel discussion 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.
