Campus Culture

Rensselaer is fortunate to have more than 1,800 dedicated employees who work to create a world-class university with global reach and global impact. We’re celebrating them, as well as our recent retirees, for the impact they’ve made on the Rensselaer community.

Rensselaer Plan 2024

“In the Communities of Rensselaer, we will: Strengthen our ethnic, gender, intellectual, and geographic diversity.”

Signature Events

Annually we recognize the people—current, as well as retired Rensselaer employees—whose skills, vision, and energy we long have relied upon to make Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute the thriving university it is today.

Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

“At Rensselaer, we challenge all members of our community to ask “Why not change the world?”  “To accomplish this, we seek to engender in our students' intellectual agility, multicultural sophistication, and a global view.”
