As I look to the future, I see a new generation of students, faculty and staff working together to improve the success of deaf and hard-of-hearing people nationally and internationally. Together we will advance NTID’s mission and ensure that the college remains the leader in postsecondary education for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
In his role as Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, Gary Behm assures that the college is centered around student and faculty/staff success, from enrollment through degree completion, to job placement after graduation. Academic Affairs is a collaborative organization that includes ten academic departments.

In accordance with the Education of the Deaf Act, the National Advisory Group is appointed to advise the President of NTID "...in formulating and carrying out the basic policies governing [NTID’s] establishment and operation, which group shall include individual who are professionally concerned with education and technical training at the postsecondary school level, persons who are professionally concerned with activities relating to education and training of individuals who are deaf, and members of the public familiar with the need for services provided by NTID."
In spring 2010, NTID completed a community-wide strategic planning process involving students, faculty, staff and alumni, which resulted in creation of Strategic Decisions 2020 (RIT account required to view), a roadmap that will guide NTID in the coming decade.
NTID is now implementing the plan, which includes strategic initiatives involving six areas:
Working with regional partners to implement intensive summer academic preparation programs in selected high-growth, ethnically diverse areas of the country
Expanding NTID's role as a National Resource Center of Excellence in the education of deaf and hard-of-hearing students in high school and at the postsecondary level.
Enhancing efforts to become a recognized national leader in the exploration, adaptation, testing and implementation of new technologies to enhance access to, and support of, learning by deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals.
