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.
Recognizing excellence in our community is also very important to us. We share and celebrate the success of our students and alumni in various ways. When it comes to our employees, we praise their outstanding achievements during the Faculty & Staff Days event by awarding them with the following awards.
"We have been awarding the Faculty Excellence in Teaching
Award at our commencement ceremonies since 2009. In 2012 to recognize the great
work of our staff, and all of the other great work that our faculty undertakes,
we introduced additional awards that we present annually at our Faculty &
Staff Days event. Everyone at RIT Croatia performs at a very high level, but it
is important on an annual basis to recognize and celebrate those who have had
extraordinary outcomes in the past year.” said Don Hudspeth, President and Dean
of RIT Croatia.
Congratulations to all FS Awards recipients for the academic year 2019/2020!

Croatian pub quiz scene has risen in popularity over the last few years. No matter what interests you in life, having fun over a few drinks in a nice cozy pub, while competing with other teams who came to the quiz for the same reason as you, to have fun, is an amazing experience. Also, we must be honest, people love to compete too, and by allowing them to compete against other people who love to compete and see who is better, that can be really exciting.
