Progress in a Pandemic
2020 threw the book at us—a global pandemic, racial unrest, economic uncertainty, a fierce political battle for leadership of our nation. But a new Global Cybersecurity Institute, more performing arts, and a record in research funding are among the highlights of this unconventional year.
Message from the President
David C. Munson Jr.
Always moving forward–even during a pandemic
RIT faced 2020 head on, pulling together our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and trustees who guided us through—and eventually will guide us out of—these turbulent times. What kept us going was a committed community and a sharp focus on two major goals: protecting the health and safety of our community and keeping RIT on track with its 2025 strategic plan and build on our hard-earned reputation as one of the nation’s top universities.
Moving into 2021, RIT is forging ahead as a beacon of hope in higher education, a place where innovation and ingenuity come together to give our students a unique experience that prepares them for success in their chosen careers and as citizens of the world.
