RIT has once again been designated a Military Friendly® School for its dedication to the military community. In 2021, the RIT community gathered at the Gordon Field House and Activities Center for the annual Veterans Day Breakfast.

Rochester Institute of Technology has been designated a Military Friendly® School for 2022-2023.

The Military Friendly® Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. More than 1,800 schools participated in the 2022-2023 survey with 665 earning the designation. The 2022-2023 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at the Military Friendly® website.

RIT has a long tradition of honoring and supporting active duty military and veterans. RIT participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and, for more than 50 years, has had a Veteran Services Office that certifies VA education benefits for veterans, their spouses, children, and grandchildren. The Veterans Upward Bound Program, funded through the Department of Education and housed at RIT, offers free assistance to veterans and service members of all ages who are interested in postsecondary education. The Veterans and Military Club on campus holds events, monthly meetings, and shares information relevant to veterans, and RIT’s ROTC Army and Air Force programs housed in the College of Engineering Technology help develop future military leaders.

“RIT is honored to be included in this list of schools dedicated to serving the military community,” said RIT President David Munson. “The veterans and service members in our community add so much to RIT’s character, and we are committed to supporting them in as many ways as possible.”
