Biographical / Historical

In 1964, RIT had 53 foreign students and at that point forward, it continued to grow. In 1978, there were 150 students from 46 countries and today, RIT is home to more than 1,000 international students from over 100 countries. Due to the growing number of international students, several organizations and departments were opened or founded to assist RIT foreign students, advise them, and/or to promote awareness.

Around 1970's, several people carried out studies and compiled reports to analyze international students and their education at RIT. In the studies, they identified several key problems associated with international students at RIT such as housing, tuition cost, cooperative education, and international laws.
