When asked about his motivation to contribute to Pioneer, Rit stated the following: “I’ve had the opportunity to meet with countless students and review thousands of applications to some of the most selective colleges in the US.  As a dean of admission you are looking for those unique abilities or experiences that set a candidate apart. Students who participate in the Pioneer Research program have had that difference-making experience.“
