Message from the Provost

We are proud that at RIT we embrace the teacher scholar model and have faculty engaged in the continual learning process. Once again, the faculty at RIT have created a substantial body of work during the past academic year. As a result of their committed efforts, both the quality and quantity of the research, scholarship, and creative work produced at RIT has steadily increased compared to previous years.

Our new strategic plan, “Greatness Through Difference” underscores our vision to make RIT a pre-eminent student-centered research university. This includes faculty engaged in creative inquiry, the applications of new and existing technologies to solve industrial challenges, as well as interdisciplinary work that crosses and intersects traditional boundaries. The research, pedagogical undertakings and scholarly activities our faculty members embark on continues to impact the students we teach, our peers within the academic community, and the world.

The connections made by RIT faculty through research, scholarship and creative work establish new opportunities for our students, and prepare them for the next stage of their careers. It is through these diverse scholarly pursuits that students and faculty are able to collaborate across international borders, and bring new insights and perspectives to their work.

It is with great pride that I present this report highlighting our faculty’s scholarly achievements during 2014.
