-- Robert Morris University’s online master of science in information technology project management ranked number one according to College Choice for the country’s best online masters in management information systems degree programs. The deciding factors for these nationally recognized top 10 institutions are reputation, tuition rate, and career placement. This degree specifically focuses on giving students tools to become leaders in the upcoming and demanding IT industry, and the faculty focus on making the online students feel as though they are traditional students.

-- The Public Relations and Marketing Department has created the RMU Brand Toolkit for campus-wide access. The goal is to tell the RMU story with more ease through this self-serve toolkit that contains commonly requested digital items such as logos, photography, Word and PowerPoint templates, letterhead, and guidelines for branding and social media practices. You can also order business cards, envelopes, promotional products, and request a photographer for an RMU event.  

-- Robert Morris University is participating for the first year in the Pittsburgh Green Workplace Challenge (GWC). This challenge focuses on tracking and measuring improvements in energy, water, waste, transportation, and other sustainability activities throughout southwestern Pennsylvania. The friendly competition between businesses, nonprofits, universities, and other organizations gives employers tools, information, and ideas for reducing various costs, earn points, and increase long-term sustainability in Pittsburgh. Anyone interested in helping with this effort should email Marcel Minutolo, associate professor of management, or call him at ext. 5451.
