Advisory Council

The Center for Teaching and Learning’s Advisory Council provides guidance on the development needs of faculty as they relate to teaching and learning at the university, and it advises the Center for Teaching and Learning in its response to such needs.

The Council is composed of one provost delegate, one academic dean (appointed by the provost), and one faculty representative from each of RIT’s nine colleges and Golisano Institute for Sustainability. Additional members also include two Academic Senate representatives and a representative from Student Government. The council will be chaired and co-chaired by the Executive Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning and a faculty member, selected annually, from among council members. Additional members may be added to the committee as needed to accomplish this work.
