Living & Learning Together – We Are RIT!

As one of the nine colleges at RIT, the National Technical Institute of the Deaf (NTID) provides education and support services for approximately 1,500 students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing from all over the United States and many other countries. The “Learning and Living Together: We are RIT” documentary video brings light to the cross-cultural barriers that occur on campus when deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing students learn and live together. Aspects of the Deaf community, communication strategies and interactions among all RIT community members will be shared. Discussions with deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing students after the film will focus on student reactions and thoughts about their roles in this unique setting. You will also have opportunities to learn basic American Sign Language (ASL) during evening events.
