Warren R. Carithers is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at RIT. His interest include operating systems, systems software, computer organization and architecture, computer graphics, and programming languages. Professor Carithers earned his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Computer Science from the University of Kansas in 1978 and 1981, and began teaching at RIT in 1981; since that time, he has taught courses at all levels of the curriculum. He was the first faculty member in the CS department to receive RIT's prestigious Eisenhart Award for Outstanding Teaching.

In terms of facilities to support the curriculum, Professor Carithers was a co-investigator on the NSF ILI grant which brought the first color graphics workstations into the department, and was the principal investigator on a second NSF grant which funded the acquisition of workstations to support a complete revision of the lower-division courses in the undergraduate curriculum. He also acquired the computer systems currently in use in the department's Distributed Systems Lab and Security Lab, and continues to configure and administer those systems to date.

Although his primary and ongoing interest is in Computer Science education, Professor Carithers has twice served the department in the position of System Administrator for the department's network of computer systems, and has also served as the department's Coordinator of Undergraduate Programs.
