Our Services


NTID advertisements appear in national publications, in print, electronic and social media, on television and anywhere an ad will be effective and advance the college’s mission. Our team can help you create an ad and develop an advertising message with a call to action, and you can get advice about where to place your ad for maximum exposure and best outcomes. 


RIT/NTID has a dynamic presence at many regional and national conferences. The Communications, Marketing & Multimedia Services team works with the NTID President’s Office and other key departments to identify events of strategic importance to the college, and sends trained personnel to ensure that conference attendees learn about all that RIT/NTID has to offer.

Here’s a small sampling of the places and events where RIT/NTID has exhibited in the past:

  • CAL-ED – the California Educators of the Deaf conference in Norwich, Calif.
  • DEAF Inc. Winterfest in St. Louis, Mo.
  • AFCOM – the Association for Computer Operations Management in Las Vegas, Nev.
  • SHRM – the Society of Human Resource Managers Diversity conference in Washington, D.C.

  • ASDC- the American Society for Deaf Children’s conference in Frederick, Maryland
  • RID – the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf conference in Atlanta, Ga.

Graphic Arts

Graphic arts and design is a creative process undertaken to convey a specific message, or messages to a targeted audience. Posters, flyers, advertisements, signage, postcards and more require design that is eye-catching and complements the message. 

Mailing Lists

Communications, Marketing & Multimedia Services maintains updated mailing lists for all the college’s constituents. Lists include prospective students and parents, teachers in high schools and middles schools, organizations, VR personnel nationwide, alumni and more.

If you are working with us on a project that involves mailing information, we will arrange to acquire the mailing list for whatever the marketing projects require. Our mailing lists are protected and can only be used for institute activities.

Media Relations

Media Relations is a liaison between RIT/NTID and external media, pitching and writing stories of interest about our students, faculty, staff or NTID in general. This includes being accessible for outside newspaper, magazine, television or radio reporters and connecting them with experts on campus who may give interviews or provide written information that assists reporters with specific stories related to RIT/NTID.  

The Media Relations staff is here to work with our students, faculty and staff who may be asked to provide information to the media. Please use the form below to notify Media Relations of any media requests or visits on campus. This will allow us to ensure the appropriate individual is being interviewed, monitor what might be printed or broadcast, enable communication in an appropriate setting, and provide interpreters if needed.

Videography involves capturing moving images on electronic media as well as the post production tasks of creating a visual design for the production. RIT/NTID videographers create the videos—from capturing the event, to editing, dubbing, arranging captioning, etc. As the demand for video ramps up, RIT/NTID videographers are busy responding to the need.

If you are creating videos from home, please follow this guide to assist you in production and to ensure that your videos meet RIT/NTID general standards. Contact Suzi Murad if you require further assistance.
