RIT/NTID Congratulates PI Millionaires

NTID's Lisa Elliot and Ron Kelly are now members of RIT’s Principal Investigator (PI) Millionaires, an elite group each of whom has achieved funding of $1 million or more since 2000. Elliot, senior research scientist, is PI for the National Science Foundation grant project, "Deaf STEM Community Alliance", which is creating a model virtual academic community for deaf and hard-of-hearing students in STEM Majors.

Ellie's 5K Run/Walk

Join us for Ellie's 5K Run & Walk Sun., April 26. Registration is at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. at the RIT Outdoor Track near the Gordon Field House. This annual event honors former RIT/NTID faculty Eleanor Rosenfield, who passed away on March 7, 2010. Proceeds from the walk will go to Gilda's Club, an organization that supports individuals with cancer.

From 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Fri., April 24, there will be a luncheon and presentation about the event in the Bamboo Room of the RIT Campus Center.

RIT/NTID Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars

Rochester Institute of Technology honored 104 students whose academic and personal achievements have made them this year’s Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars.

The awards, bronze medallions, were presented in ceremonies on April 16, 2015 to those students who have met the scholarship criteria—a minimum grade-point average of 3.85 out of 4.0; completed more than two-thirds of the credit hours required for a bachelor’s degree; and demonstrated community engagement, such as creative work, serve on student committees, civic activities, employment or independent research.

2015 Imagine RIT

Imagine RIT, the nationally acclaimed festival now in its eighth year, returns to the RIT campus on May 2, 2015 with more than 400 examples of innovation and creativity, all showcased through interactive exhibitions, demonstrations and live performances. More than 30,000 people are expected to visit the RIT campus for the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A variety of food, entertainment and children’s activities combine to make the event a fun, family-friendly environment.
