The Center for Campus Life at RIT provides a campus environment which supports transformational community and individual student activities, learning and growth. This is a team of creative, collaborative and committed professionals that offers students, clubs and organizations as well as the colleagues that support them, a model for work and interactions that are appropriately challenging, passionate and fun.
RIT’s Center for Campus Life will use every interaction, conversation, and activity as an opportunity to both exhibit and foster individual and collective evolution as we seek to become increasingly welcoming, trusted, and respected; as an organization, within the division, and at the university. It is our collective organizational commitment to support, challenge, and celebrate one another in becoming the department of choice as collaborators, communicators, programmers, advisors, and advocates on a quest for achieving the greatest student experience at RIT.
