Our Foundation

Mission and Vision

The mission and vision statement aligns our constituents around a core focus (mission) and inspires actions toward a desired future (vision). Together, these elements frame a fundamental purpose for RIT’s existence. They are central to our institution and serve as a guidepost for all activity that the university conducts.

We shape the future and improve the world through creativity and innovation. As an engaged, intellectually curious, and socially conscious community, we leverage the power of technology, the arts, and design to make good things happen.
