Dr. Hill recognized as a faculty scholar

Each year, RIT launches the Faculty Scholarship Report to reflect on the previous year’s successes and to showcase RIT's valued faculty members whose research efforts continue to promote innovation, collaboration and discovery. The 2016 report marks yet another year of continued growth, with over 1,900 scholarly works included. This year’s report also places a specific emphasis on featuring a select group of outstanding faculty and the contributions they have made to their field, their students and their community.
