The mission of the Office of Faculty Recruitment is to assist the institution in achieving a more diverse and inclusive faculty by building a pipeline of underserved populations through relationship networking. Every search committee’s recruitment efforts are supported by the Office’s strategic sourcing of AALANA and women scholars.
Excellence Though Diversity, Journey to Greatness:
Doing it the RIT Way
What is the Office of Faculty Recruitment?
The Office of Faculty Recruitment provides support during the faculty hiring process by assisting the Provost, Deans, Department Chairs and Search Committee Members in establishing a pipeline of scholars that ultimately leads to an increase in African American, Native American, Latin American (AALANA) and women faculty at RIT.
Teaching, learning, scholarship, leadership development, and student success are the focus at RIT. Our office’s current efforts are focused on expanding the pool of applicants by attracting underserved populations to faculty positions that enrich our diverse educational community. The office nurtures these relationships by providing three key initiatives to foster RIT’s diversity goals: Prospective Faculty Database; Future Faculty Career Exploration Program (FFCEP); Future Faculty Fellowship; and recruitment of diverse scholars.
