Today's interconnected and rapidly evolving world provides new and exciting opportunities for global collaboration - as well as a need to be creative, innovative, and break down barriers in support of connectivity. Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) is one of the world’s most innovative, agile, diverse and globally-minded universities. RIT is proud of the more than 5,000 international students studying at our campuses in Rochester, China, Croatia, Dubai, and Kosovo. We celebrate the growing number of students and faculty engaged in study abroad, international fellowships, and globally connected research. Though the pandemic has certainly disrupted our goals and plans for international education, it has not stopped RIT from engaging with other cultures and continuing our work on solving some of the world's biggest challenges.
