NSF AdvanceRIT
The NSF ADVANCE Institutional Transformation project referred to as AdvanceRIT (NSF 1209115), is an effort across RIT’s nine colleges and all Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines including Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS). The AdvanceRIT project is funded through a large institutional transformation grant from the National Science Foundation.  The project’s goals are to increase the representation of women STEM faculty at RIT and to increase their representation among our campus leaders.  These goals are achieved through creating new and refining existing systems/structures within the university and through offering new targeted programs for faculty.

RIT Women in Computing
Founding Executive Director
Women In Computing at RIT is a group of students, faculty and staff who are committed to the success and advancement of women in computing. This spans all computing disciplines from traditional computer science, to the emerging disciplines of computer gaming and information assurance and security. Our purpose is to support existing and new creative micro-cultures and bring those communities together when opportunities arise. We also strive to increase awareness of our disciplines by promoting the field computing to area school-age girls and boys through our Women in Computing outreach.
