The College of Health Sciences and Technology—RIT’s ninth college—opened in September 2011, with programs from the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, College of Applied Sciences and Technology and College of Science.
The college has its roots in the RIT & Rochester Regional Health Alliance, formed in 2008 to broaden educational opportunities for RIT students and to encourage collaboration between the two organizations.
