Purpose of the RIT Sports Hall of Fame
To recognize RIT student-athletes and/or teams who have distinguished themselves in the field of athletics, either by virtue of their performance on athletic teams representing the department or by meritorious efforts on behalf of intercollegiate athletics either as an undergraduate or in years after leaving the institution. Consideration will also be given to those who have made other significant contributions to the athletic program at RIT.
Nominations must be submitted by someone other than the recommended recipient. The nominator must provide the information requested on the nomination form.

A former athlete must be a certified graduate of the Institute to include bachelor’s and/or associate’s degrees. The athlete becomes eligible five years after completing athletic eligibility.
