Join President David Munson as he welcomes the RIT community back to campus and to the beginning of a new academic year.

The Welcome and State of the University Address is 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, inside Ingle Auditorium in the Student Alumni Union. A reception will immediately follow in the adjacent Fireside Lounge.

“The start of a new year offers a moment to reflect on our accomplishments and an opportunity to generate new ideas, as we collectively look to the future,” Munson said.

While the event will be livestreamed on the Office of the President webpage for viewers at RIT’s global campuses and remote locations, Munson encouraged the community to attend in person.

During his address, RIT’s president will review the past year’s accomplishments and preview university leadership’s agenda and vision for the coming year. Using information gathered from campus partners, he will provide updates on enrollment, faculty and staff highlights, student achievements, the SHED and other construction projects, as well as several other major milestones.

In addition to RIT’s president, campus leaders from the Division of Diversity and Inclusion, Faculty Senate, Staff Council, and Student Government will make remarks.

“Engaged and informed students, faculty, and staff are vital to the success of the university and ensure that RIT runs efficiently and effectively,” Munson said. “Your participation in this event will help elevate the university.”
