RIT President Bill Destler states “Downtown Rochester is at a critical development juncture. RIT’s presence at the liberty Pole will serve as a catalyst and assist in a downtown resurgence. With a focus on entrepreneurship, we see potential for reshaping the region’s economy through new business development.” Will they be training drug dealers on sales technique? Blacks to fight and shoot better. Anger management? Just what businesses will want to be in the city???RIT briefed Sen. Charles Schumer on the project during its initial stages to gain the senator’s support to seek critical funding which would be required for RIT to ultimately move forward with this development. Only 2 to 4 million is needed?

Couldn't they have opened an "Urban Entrepreneurship" out in the burbs or the rural areas?

More money down the toilet that the USA no longer has. Socialism is a mental disorder. Look MR. RIT President (Mr PhD) Only 40% graduate from the City Schools. WTF are you going to do? Norman Leenhouts (Democrat) purchased the building and wants the USA to fund his new building by helping blacks through RIT create businesses??????Thus making Leenhouts even richer and the USA poorer. The black continue to be stupid.

They should have just stayed in the burbs and changed their name to H.I.T.

Of the "Only 40% graduate from the City Schools."

How many really have better than a 8Th 9Th grade education?

Ask the teachers local employers off the record.
