The performing arts program at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf has launched an advisory committee to strengthen, support and advise NTID’s theater program. The committee will engage in community outreach, promote greater community involvement in theater, increase opportunities for student participation and promote American Sign Language theater.

The NTID Performing Arts Advisory Committee’s goals include establishing a summer theater program for deaf and hard-of-hearing high school and college students to encompass performance, stagecraft, cinematic studies, multimedia, directing and theater management; reviving RIT/NTID’s acclaimed Sunshine Too troupe, a traveling group of six students—three deaf, three hearing—that performed in schools throughout the country for more than 18 years; establishing internship and co-op positions; and  promoting the development of original work by deaf playwrights.

RIT points of pride

19 Jan

A world leader in education and access for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

Rochester Institute of Technology is emerging as one of the world’s most innovative, agile, diverse and forward-thinking universities. At RIT, we forge greatness by being different. We are a world leader in education and access for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. We have students who improve HIV medications in Africa, conduct remote sensing on volcanoes in Iceland, help select the Mars 2020 rover landing site, and win national cyber-defense competitions. And we have faculty who invent wearable technologies that protect soldiers, who work on the nation’s top advanced manufacturing initiatives, and are named U.S. Professor of the Year.

This is just a start. Check out the RIT Points of Pride website.
