We look forward to having you join the celebration as we come together as a community to reaffirm the shared values and strength of our great university.
“It is a great honor and privilege to become the next president of what I believe to be a gem in higher education. I was drawn to RIT when I observed a diverse portfolio of academic programs, research with impact to solve global problems, and an ability to stay focused on the overall student experience. I am truly enamored with RIT’s ability to work at the intersection of technology, the arts and design, and how these core strengths will enable us to lead the nation if not the world.”
Dr. David C. Munson Jr.
