Family support and involvement are essential factors for helping students achieve their academic and career goals.

At RIT, we know that parents are an important part of the campus community. In our partnership with you, we know that students will receive the information, support, and resources they need to be successful at RIT and beyond. Parent and Family Programs is here to help parents through their student’s transition into adulthood. By sharing information about student development, campus resources, and the family role, we know you can provide your student the support they need.

Newsletter
