Creating Student Opportunities for Success

Saunders College is named after E. Philip Saunders, a serial entrepreneur and founder of TravelCenters of America Inc. Mr. Saunders' support has helped catapult RIT Business programs to new heights in providing resources for scholarships, faculty expansion and an endowment for future initiatives. This support is centered on creating student opportunities.

Mr. Saunders bought into a business school where his entrepreneurial spirit is reflected and is firmly positioned at the intersection of business and technology. His significant investments in time, effort, and funding instilled a confidence and a vision inspiring others to follow. His leadership resulted in the completion of the Saunders Challenge where Saunders matching contributions helped raise $20 million.

With a steady path of increased rankings and reputation, Saunders College is excelling in its traditions of offering an applied education, with a best-of-class outcomes rate, leveraging the RIT Edge through access to STEM disciplines across all nine colleges at RIT.
