NTID Alumni Association

Benefits and Services

The NTID Alumni Association

NTID alumni enjoy the benefits, services and support shared by all RIT alumni through the RIT Alumni Association. Additionally, the NTID Alumni Association was established to benefit YOU — the more than 8,000 RIT/NTID alumni who represent every state in the U.S., and numerous countries around the world. The association's purpose is to foster the relationship between RIT/NTID alumni and the college by hosting alumni receptions, connecting alumni with employers, seeking alumni volunteers, fundraising and more.

NTID Alumni Association Board of Directors

To help foster interaction and growth among the more than 30 NTID Alumni Association Chapters, the NTID Alumni Association Board of Directors, which has grown to more than 20 individuals representing a variety of geographical areas and various degree programs, meets twice a year - in the fall during Brick City Homecoming Weekend and in the spring during Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival.
