NTID Diversity Group (NDG)
The NTID Diversity Group (NDG) is a faculty and staff volunteer group committed to promoting the best possible learning, living and working experience for AALANA (Asian, Latino, African, and Native American) members of the RIT/NTID community. NDG's focus is community involvement, professional development and being a resource for the RIT/NTID community.
RIT Division of Diversity & Inclusion (DDI)
The RIT Division of Diversity & Inclusion works collaboratively with academic and administrative units to provide a holistic range of services that enhance access and success for historically underrepresented students, faculty and staff, support education and scholarship, and ensure a welcoming, inclusive, vibrant and accessible environment for everyone.
NTID Faculty Fellowship (NFF)
The mission of the NTID Faculty Fellowship (NFF) is to work towards diversifying the faculty by increasing the number of post-secondary STEM instructors and professors from historically underrepresented groups who are qualified to teach DHH college students. The program provides qualified Fellows with up to three years of mentored experiences, opportunities, and resources to prepare them for academic careers working with the aforementioned population.
Each Fellow will have an individualized professional development team that will guide their overall career development and success. The program has two tracks: one for those who desire a post-secondary teaching career (lecture track) and one for those who desire a balanced teaching and scholarship career (assistant professor track).
While NTID is particularly interested in increasing the number of STEM faculty from underrepresented groups, candidates from other disciplines offered by NTID are eligible to apply.
The Randleman Program
The vision of the Randleman Program is to recruit and retain interpreters of color across the field of interpreting. It is fundamental that the interpreting field reflects the unique, diverse, and rich cultural experiences within the Deaf community. By supporting and increasing representation of interpreters of color, we celebrate how the field of interpreting can flourish through cultural competency and diverse perspectives.
International Educational Outreach (IEO)
The mission of the center for International Educational Outreach (IEO) at NTID is to expand education opportunities for Deaf communities outside of the United States by collaborating with Deaf leaders and institutions of other countries to build centers of excellence in Deaf education. International Educational Outreach works to expand research and collaboration opportunities between NTID and international organizations for the Deaf.
