Rochester Institute of Technology is emerging into one of the world’s most innovative, agile, diverse and forward-thinking universities. At RIT, we forge greatness by being different. Our student and faculty have an impact throughout the world.

Here is what makes RIT distinctly global:

  • Campuses in China, Croatia, Dubai and Kosovo featuring entrepreneurship and innovative ventures, information technology, management information systems, microelectronic engineering, and service leadership and innovation.
  • Faculty who harness GIS mapping to upgrade infrastructure in Syrian refugee camps, apply imaging science to improve biodiversity in Rwanda, and partner with Swedish colleagues on emerging art forms.
  • Students who establish sustainability standards for Peru, design sanitation and cooking systems in Haiti, and ensure quality support services for the deaf and hard of hearing in the Dominican Republic.

This is just a start. There’s more that makes us proud on the RIT Points of Pride website.
