Historical Information for College of Continuing Education (Collapse)

The College of Continuing Education (CCE) was developed to help working men and women expand their skills and increase their knowledge of business, science and art, while still being able to work and have the flexibility they needed. Combining up to four professional concentrations, degrees were designed to fit and meet the needs of the working adult. Classes were available in the evenings and also through a pre-taped television course. RIT established many locations in the Rochester area to make it easier for people to attend.

In 1996, CCE was absorbed into the Center for Multidisciplinary Studies (CIMS), and the College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST). The merger was an effort to enhance and strengthen RIT's commitment to responsive, successful, and mutually beneficial external partnerships. RIT was responding to the changing needs of its partners to remain a key resource to business and industry for research, technology transfer, cooperative education, and training for human resource development. It was believed this move would enhance RIT's ability to create new entrepreneurial opportunities and facilitate their implementation.
