Abstract:
The M. Richard Rose audio recording collections contains audio recordings of Dr. Rose during his presidency at RIT. M. Richard Rose (born 1933) was the 7th President of Rochester Institute of Technology, serving from 1979 to 1992. Miller and Rose shared the belief that students in a technical school should be exposed to more art, literature, philosophy and culture. Partially out of this interest, and partially due to financial difficulties, Eisenhower College became a part of RIT. The university had made attempts to increase the liberal arts and humanities curriculum. Rose helped launch RIT's first Ph.D. program, in imaging science, in 1988.
