RIT Archives StoryBooth collection


As part of our commitment to collecting the cultural heritage and history of RIT, the RIT Archives launched a new StoryBooth program in Fall 2022 to document the voices of our campus community. By participating in the StoryBooth, interviewees add invaluable knowledge, memories and experiences to our collections, thereby advancing our shared understanding of what it means to be a part of RIT, and ensuring that diverse expressions are represented for generations to come.
