College Initiatives

dye gardenA central component of FIT's mission, and woven throughout the college's strategic plan, is a commitment to sustainability, diversity, and civility. One of the key goals of the FIT Strategic Plan is to create a campus that is purposefully diverse -- one which, through its students, faculty and staff -- reflects the pluralistic city, nation, and world in which we live.

Through the establishment of various councils, task forces, and committees, President Joyce F. Brown has provided opportunities for members of the FIT community to celebrate and honor cultural diversity, to incorporate sustainability into both operational and curricular activities, and to foster discussion of respectful ways of living and learning in a higher education environment. The groups are charged with providing support for activities and encouraging dialogue throughout the institution.
