Historical Information: RIT Task Force on Reorganization

The Strategic Planning Committee formed the Task Force on Reorganization, which was charged with examining the organization, functional structures, and strategies of the Institute. They were to present a report on the strategic analysis and planning of institutional restructuring to the administration. The Task Force was created in response to fluctuating student attrition, which caused instability for RIT as an institution that depends heavily on tuition income. The most momentous decision of the restructuring was the development of the institution’s first doctorate program, the first and only Imaging Science PhD in the country at that time.
