Jenna Stein NTID Senator
Hello! My name is Jenna Stein and I am your NTID senator. I am a fourth year ASL-English Interpretation student with a minor in Deaf Cultural Studies. I am from Ithaca, NY. I have been a sister of Sigma Sigma Sigma National Sorority for 2 years and am currently serving as the president. My 4 years at NTID have been some of the best times of my life, and I am so grateful to be able to give back to my community.
As the NTID senator, I plan to continue the work of the previous NTID senator as well as working with members of every aspect of the NTID community. I will be holding meetings with students, faculty, staff and administrators to gain a better understanding of the issues within NTID that need to be addressed. I plan to help increase the collaboration between RIT and NTID as well as to emphasize the strong suits of NTID to the rest of campus.
During my term as NTID senator, I plan to work with the Signing in Public Spaces, Semester Curriculum and Retention Committees as well as working directly with Gerry Bateman's office. My goals for this term are to increase NTID's presence on campus, to improve the level of education at NTID and to address any issues that are brought to my attention.
I would love to hear from any and all members of the NTID community. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and please feel free to come up to me in person. I can often be found in the Student Government office and you can always find me at the SG Senate Meetings on Fridays from 1-3, stop by a meeting to see what's going on in all aspects of campus!
I am looking forward to working with the rest of the Student Government team. I am especially excited to see what I can do for NTID while in this position! LET'S GO TIGERS!
I have several exciting goals for this year. Some of the policies need to be changed and updated to accommodate the needs of the unique community at NTID. Social events will be planned for the community. I will also help meet the goals that the former NTID senators had. I feel that it is important to build a good relationship between NTID and RIT. I would like to fight to improve the system that addresses English learning for Deaf and hard of hearing students. I will advocate for free NTID Learning Center (NLC) printing and more majors/minor options. I would like to see increased number of freshmen students staying at NTID through the year.
My constituents can help me and voice their opinion by attending the NTID Student Assembly (NSA) meetings. This will help me to better understand community issues and needs and how I can help. I am the co-chair of English committee and will be sitting on several committees. If you have any questions, please contact at me by email at sgntidrit.edu.
What I like about NTID/RIT is that there are two cultures, hearing and Deaf/hard-of-hearing. NTID/RIT is a community of diversity with people from all over the world. That is fantastic!
