History of RITirees

In 1998 President Simone & Provost McKenzie approached Dr. Barry Culhane and challenged him to put together a program of communication and interaction for all of RIT’s retired Faculty/Staff. The initial event was an annual picnic, held in a tent on Liberty Hill grounds, now held in the Gordon Field House. In addition, periodic Newsletters were produced and distributed. In 1999 awards for retirees were established for those individuals who continue to serve the RIT community and greater Rochester well past retirement. In 2008 The December Holiday Gathering at Barnes and Noble was established. 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the RITirees picnic where over 600 retirees are expected to attend.
