AdvanceRIT Partnership Grants

The AdvanceRIT Partnership Grant provides funding to campus partners to support new activities which are closely aligned with the AdvanceRIT objectives and do not lend themselves to the Connect Grant structure or timing. The first grantee is the Physics Department, who will be hosting a gender equity evaluation visit in the fall semester through the American Physical Science Society. AdvanceRIT and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion are partnering with the Physics Department to sponsor this activity. Please contact ADVANCEwomen@rit.edu with general questions.
