Friends and family of a beloved former staff member at NTID are honoring her memory with a new scholarship. The Stephanie Smith Albert Memorial Endowed Scholarship was created in memory of the college’s first director of Diversity and Inclusion, who passed away in 2018.
The show must go on – even if it means virtually. While performing arts offerings at RIT may look and feel differently from how they normally operate, RIT is committed to making sure they are available in a healthy and safe manner.
RIT is requiring all students, faculty, and staff to monitor their health for COVID-19 symptoms. The new policy will help protect the health and safety of the community at RIT and in the Greater Rochester area during the ongoing pandemic. Starting July 27, the university will launch the RIT Daily Health Screen website and call-in option.
The roles of some of the country’s leading Black Deaf artists will be discussed in a Zoom webinar on Saturday, July 25, sponsored by the Dyer Arts Center at NTID. The virtual panel discussion, “Respeck Our Black Deaf Arts,” will explore Black Deaf artists’ roles in the arts, what inspires them to create in response to the #BlackLivesMatter movement, and the national conversation about race, the future of the Black Deaf arts, and more.
As the RIT community prepares to return to campus this fall, an environment of physical distancing and reduced classroom occupancies has added a new component to the course scheduling process. Throughout the summer, every college has worked to rebuild the fall schedule to accommodate the unique requirements of the fall semester.
RIT's “Workplace Safety Plan in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic” focuses on the health and safety of our faculty, staff, student employees, visitors, and other invited guests, and is aligned with applicable local, state, and federal laws.
