The Office of Faculty Diversity and Recruitment works across the university to advance the recruitment of talented African American, Latino American, Native American (AALANA) and women scholars and artists to enrich our diverse faculty community.

This campaign highlights and celebrates our excellent and diverse faculty, in both a personal and professional manner, while highlighting a shared identity – I am RIT Faculty. Through the following video and photo campaign, take a moment to see and hear directly from our faculty, as they discuss life as a faculty member here at RIT, and life as a community member within the greater Rochester area.
Be the first to know about open faculty positions by adding your credentials and research or artistic information to our Scholars Network. We recruit talented scholars year-round and will contact you when positions become available. Submit your credentials
Future Faculty Career Exploration Program
A rigorous four-day program designed for African American, Latino American, and Native American (AALANA) scholars and artists to experience a “behind the scenes” glimpse into life as a faculty member at RIT. You’ll spend time learning from and networking with RIT administration, faculty, and students, practicing your interview skills and job-talk presentation – while exploring the research, teaching, and service expectations of RIT faculty.

We are traveling to universities across the country both in person and virtually to meet with women and AALANA graduate student groups at their campuses. During our visits, we discuss faculty opportunities at RIT and provide you with insight on creating a compelling faculty application and advice on making your transition from graduate student to assistant professor.

Pathways to RIT
A virtual “academic open house," the Pathways to RIT program is designed to help scholars and artists who will soon be on the job market better understand RIT and the Greater Rochester area. During these sessions, attendees will meet with the administration and faculty in our colleges. RIT hosts will lead discussions on different aspects of faculty life within their college. This is your chance to ask questions that will help you in learning more about faculty life, such as course offerings, research initiatives, student population, teaching loads and more.
Join us for an Academic Open House to learn more about faculty career paths and opportunities within the RIT Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences. Historically underrepresented minority and women Ph.D. students, postdoc fellows and early career researchers who want to explore how to apply or understand what it would take to land a faculty position are encouraged to register.

RIT Action Plan for Race & Ethnicity
In July 2021, RIT unveiled an extensive new plan and series of initiatives aimed at making the university more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. The Action Plan for Race and Ethnicity will guide RIT’s efforts over the next several years as it rolls out new programs, services, and policies to help create equal access, opportunities, and respect for all students, faculty, and staff.
To attract and retain an excellent and diverse faculty, RIT offers a number of programs and professional development opportunities to help faculty succeed from our onboarding and orientation on through to the tenure and promotion process.

RIT scientists have once again used data from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) as part of the Cosmic Evolution Early Release Science (CEERS) Survey to change the way we think about the universe and its distant galaxies. Jeyhan Kartaltepe and Rebecca Larson co-authored a paper confirming very bright galaxies in the early universe, while also disproving the identification of what would have been the most distant galaxy ever found.
Gabriel Diaz, associate professor in the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science, and his team are aiming to understand the effects of cortical blindness on the processing of visual information used to guide behavior, like driving a vehicle. Cortical blindness affects nearly half a million stroke patients in the United States each year.
In his welcome to the community for the start of a new academic year, RIT President David Munson asserted the university is well positioned to thrive while laying out “challenges, opportunities, and vision” for RIT’s future.
