Life Connections (February 5th): Life Connections was an opportunity for faculty new to the Rochester area (and even those who are not so new to the area) to get recommendations for personal resources. Faculty who have lived in Rochester for some time were encouraged to attend to share their resources and meet RIT’s newer faculty members. Thirteen women met and shared resources in the Rochester area. These included favorite places to take a hike, dentists, doctors and grocery stores, to name a few. Many of the attendees are faculty who have been at RIT less than two years.
Considering a Terminal Degree? (April 6th): This will be apanel session co-hosted by Faculty Career Development Services and AdvanceRIT. It will feature several faculty who have obtained their terminal degress while working full time as faculty at RIT. They will provide information about how they selected their program, what they wished they had known before they started on the endeavor and what it was like balancing being a student and a professor at the same time.
