For the first time, Rochester Institute of Technology has been recognized by the Institute of International Education in its annual IIE Andrew Heiskell Awards for Innovation in International Education. RIT received honorable mention in the Internationalizing the Campus category and will be featured by the IIENetwork as a "best practice” in international education.
"This international award is a testimony to the collaboration among faculty, staff, administration and students that is necessary to transform into a truly global university,” said James Myers, associate provost of international education and global programs at RIT.During the holiday break, student leaders from RIT’s campuses across the globe met in Dubai to discuss their strengths and challenges and how they can better work collaboratively.
RIT earned the recognition through its emphasis on a shared governance model, which has enabled international expansion and engagement. RIT has engaged in a strategic effort to internationalize the university over the past seven years since it formally established the RIT Global Office, which serves as a focal point for all of the university’s global engagements in Rochester as well as at RIT’s campuses in Croatia, Kosovo, China and Dubai. Today the university delivers 24 degree programs outside of the United States and has achieved a 60 percent growth in international students, enrolling almost 5,000 international students among all the campuses. RIT has grown its study abroad participation by 70 percent, and has embedded global learning outcomes in both the general education curriculum and in many professional degree programs.
