Case 9: Individualized Education Cont.

SOIS_text only_sm_2

Under the direction of Dr. Jim Hall, in 2015 the Center for Multidisciplinary Studies was renamed the School of Individualized Study (SOIS). The School of Individualized Study (SOIS) is RIT’s academic unit for individualized degrees and is committed to helping students in the pursuit of purpose-driven, innovative and individualized education.

This is done by developing and offering undergraduate and graduate-level credentials with high-touch advising, flexibility in the method of delivery, wide accessibility, non-traditional approaches to earning credit, and customization while incorporating an integrated curriculum.

Tracing its past to the Mechanics Institute’s earliest curricular offerings in single classes to fulfill educational pursuit, SOIS, in its various iterations over the years, has been a space for each student to create and chart one’s course.
