Riassunto: Rochester Institute of Technology's story now encompasses some 175 years of commitment to higher education. Almost uniquely among American universities, RIT has focused on educating a skilled workforce to support advancements in the industrialization and modernization of America. From its beginnings in 1829, when it harnessed the energy of a young city in upstate New York, through stunningly effective mergers and nimble responses to new technologies, RIT has evolved into a respected model in innovative higher education. In this new and enlarged edition of his original history of RIT (1982), Professor Gordon brings the university's fascinating chronicle up to date. RIT has enjoyed tremendous growth over the past 25 years, and readers will enjoy anecdotes on student life, insights into major initiatives, and an objective look at the tough decisions that have guided RIT into the company of the highest-ranking academic institutions in the United States. This book is of certain interest for urban and technological historians, college administrators nationwide, and especially RIT's own growing community of students, employees, supporters, and alumni.
