Meet the Dean

Laverne McQuiller

We have learned through long experience that the world’s problems cannot not be solved by technology alone; rather, we will solve them by thinking critically about the social, ethical, legal, environmental, political and economic aspects of these problems, and through understanding how to create and use technology to bring out the best in humanity.

    RIT COVID-19 Alert Level moves to Yellow

    After careful consideration, we have made the decision to move our alert level on campus from Orange to Yellow, meaning that the prevalence of the virus on campus remains a moderate risk. While this changes our alert level closer to where we all would like to be, we must continue to be extremely vigilant. We must not let our guard down.
