Legacy Leadership

Thank you for expressing interest in the Legacy Leadership program of the Center for Women and Gender. We are so excited to hear about all the wonderful achievements our graduating seniors have made in their time here at RIT.

This information should be enough to get you started on your self-nomination. At the same time, please feel free to email questions to if you need additional information.

Self-nomination requirements:

  1. Applicants must be female-identified, graduating seniors or graduate students. This means that you have met all of the requirements for graduation and the 2019 graduation will mark the end of your degree program.
  2. Applicants must submit an application located here: Please click on the link and complete the application onsite.
  3. Applicants must submit 2 letters of support. These letters may be obtained from RIT faculty or staff members who are aware of your achievements. A letter may be obtained by a Rochester community member who has had extensive interaction with the self-nominee and is also an RIT partner. An RIT partner is anyone who has a relationship with the university but is not an employee here. These letters may be submitted directly to the Center for Women & Gender or with your materials.


All applications will be considered provided that requirements are met.

The selected Legacy Leaders will be invited to attend the 2019 Women’s Career Achievement Dinner held on April 22, 2019, in the Gordon Field House as guests of the Center for Women and Gender.

Thank you for your participation in the program and for being a wonderful member of our community!
