Semester Conversion Celebration

Published Aug. 29, 2013

Students, faculty and staff of Rochester Institute of Technology are gathering today to celebrate the efforts of everyone involved in helping the university move from a quarterly academic calendar to one based on semesters.

The calendar conversion, first announced in 2010, was a complicated process that involved the collaboration of the entire university. A group of committees that included faculty and staff, often in consultation with Student Government leaders, has overseen everything from converting our academic programs from quarters to their semester version, and designing the new calendar to converting to a new student information system to making sure every student received advisement during the transition.
