Historical Information: RIT Veteran's Day breakfast

RIT Veteran’s Day Breakfast is an annual celebration developed in 2014 to pay tribute to all those that are serving or have served in the army. The breakfast is free and includes breakfast and coffee. The founder, Dr. Barry Culhane who was the Executive Assistant to the President of RIT in 2011, dedicated this day to celebrating veterans and members of the army. Culhane, himself, is a veteran and served from 1969-1971 as a medic and is very involved in veteran organizations and events.

The celebration is usually held in RIT’s Gordon Field House and Activities Center. Often, there will be key speakers and veterans with family and friends who talk about their service and develop understandings of veteran culture with the community. Some organizations such as the Veterans Outreach Center and Veterans Upward Bound attend to provide information about their associations. The overall purpose of the gathering is to show appreciation and gratitude.

RIT works with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for the Yellow Ribbon program. This program offers qualified veterans and their families the opportunity to attend college with full tuition coverage. The annual RIT Veteran’s Day Breakfast is one of many services that RIT dedicates to contribute and support the people that have served.
