Required for All RIT Employees

Employees should complete these sessions as close to their hire date as possible.

In-Person Courses

Early Intervention is an important process for all members of our community to learn and understand. This training will help us promote a safer community for all on campus and will ensure that all members of our community will receive the care and attention they need to be successful at RIT.

The purpose of this training program is to raise our awareness as it relates to recognizing disruptive behaviors and the resources available to manage potentially dangerous situations. The program will also introduce the Title IX Program to you which will enable you to be aware of the response and resources available to the RIT community related to gender based discrimination or harassment. 

This informative 1-hour session will outline the four steps in the early intervention process:

  • Recognize disruptive behaviors
  • Know what Resources are available
  • Refer students and others to services and providers
  • Reconnect to help keep the student engaged and in the community
  • Report all crimes to Public Safety that students and employees share with you (Proxy reporting option)

This session is required for all members of the RIT faculty and staff community.

Welcome to RIT! Our New Employee Orientation program is an exciting one day event to help acclimate new employees to our university!

New employees will participate in a detailed discussion surrounding the RIT core values, as well as learn some of RIT's exciting history! We will navigate the university's colleges and divisions, review and show you where to find essential information regarding RIT's institute policies and procedures, and answer any questions you may have. Then you will take the required "Early Intervention Program Training & Title IX," "Getting Comfortable with Diversity" and the final session will be "Benefits Orientation."

In addition we have the RIT Compliance and Conflict of Interest Training online. This session is also required for all RIT employees.
