    Current Employee - Assistant Professor in Rochester, NY

    I have been working at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great technical reputation, access to latest technology, industry connections, wonderful people. Has a rich history of producing technically competent employees. Focus on giving students work experience (coops) is an excellent advantage for students and maintains important relations between RIT and many of the businesses of the world.

    Cons

    New focus on research removing faculties' connections with students. Emphasis on retention (without influx of top level students) gives faculty an ambiguous message. Make our students "the best" but don't make the courses "too difficult." Work that makes a good environment for students and fellow faculty and staff does not count (nor does teaching). No PhD, no status. Blah, blah...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Boldly declare a move to lecturers for most instruction, and let the rest of the tenured and tenure track faculty do their research. Or, decide "Hey, this was a bad idea - we're not meant to be R1" and go back to supporting instruction, faculty, students, and the work environment.
