RIT's national Carnegie Classification changed to "Doctoral University"



The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education has changed RIT from "Masters - Comprehensive" to "Doctoral University - Limited Research Activity." This change occurs when a university graduates more than 20 Ph.D. degrees per year, a figure that RIT has exceeded in recent years. In May 2015, RIT awarded 33 doctoral degrees in seven Ph.D. programs, the most in its history. "We have been expecting this change, and it reflects the rapid upward momentum of RIT over the last several decades," said RIT President Bill Destler. "The movement of RIT into the ranks of the nation's finest colleges and universities is a remarkable story." Read more at: http://www.rit.edu/news/story.php?id=54304
