The Division of Diversity and Inclusion works collaboratively with the entire RIT community to create an environment that embraces all students, faculty and staff. Respecting different cultures, perspectives and beliefs is important because we believe through thoughtful engagement, we can all learn from our differences.
RIT has one of the largest divisions in the nation, housing 38 faculty and staff dedicated to the university’s core values of respect, diversity, and pluralism.
More than 600 students from across the university participate in Diversity and Inclusion events, programs, and initiatives.
Number of years RIT has hosted the Future Faculty Career Exploration Program (FFCEP), creating the first nationally recognized best-practice in faculty diversity and recruitment.
The chance that any two undergraduate students selected at random are of different race/ethnicity.
Message from Vice President and Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are fundamental aspects of RIT’s identity as an institution and are intrinsically tied to its historic strength as one of America’s most innovative and forward-looking universities.
