Dubrovnik / Zagreb, September 8th2014
The "Time vault” of Zagrebačka banka has gained another memorabilia that will be shown to the public in a 100 years – a magnificent photograph called the Big Shot of Dubrovnik. The photo was handed over to Zagrebačka banka’s representatives in Dubrovnik by Don Hudspeth, RIT Croatia’s President and Dean. Started in 1987, RIT’s Big Shot (http://bigshot.cias.rit.edu/) is a very interesting nighttime photography project that takes place on an annual basis, each time at a different location. Therefore, in 2007 it was time for beautiful Dubrovnik to play its part. It is interesting that all external lighting of the City wall and the Pile stone bridge was provided by multiple hand-held electronic flash units and flashlights operated by 478 people, students, faculty, staff & friends of the University. Alongside the photo, RIT Croatia deposited its business mission, vision and list of values as well.
„We have decided to take part in this project and deposit our mission, vision and values to future RIT Croatia generations as a legacy and a direction of our college’s development. Furthermore, Dubrovnik is very important to RIT and RIT Croatia; it has been our home for almost 20 years. Therefore, we have also decided to deposit a spectacular photograph of Dubrovnik – with almost 500 people participating in taking the photo. We have challenged the future Dean and employees of RIT Croatia to repeat this project and thus capture the beauty of this magnificent city", said Don Hudspeth.
With the start of the new academic year higher education institutions are facing unique challenges that stand to swiftly, thoroughly, and permanently reshape them. When academic year starts with key messages focused around safety of students and faculty, it is clear even to a common observer that students and faculty alike are embarking on a journey like none before.
Quality and excellence have always been embedded in RIT Croatia's DNA. As a global campus of RIT, we are committed to deliver exceptional studying and learning experiences for our students, we well as working experience for our employees.
