Student Life Team
The Student Life Team (SLT) challenges and educates all deaf and hard-of-hearing students, providing resources and support for successful transition throughout college and after graduation. SLT’s collaborations with the NTID Counseling and Academic Advising Services Department, NTID Center on Employment, NTID Student and Academic Services, RIT Department of Public Safety and several offices across RIT’s Division of Student Affairs ensure that students are provided diverse opportunities to optimize the collegiate experiences. SLT’s co-curricular and late-night educational programming, spiritual/religious and civility exploration workshops, self-advocacy and community accountability mentoring programs, social and cultural programs, fraternity and sorority event collaborations, and club/organization advising are avenues of outreaching and networking with deaf and hard-of-hearing students. SLT values its ongoing partnership with RIT/NTID alumni to offer every student a greater sense of his/her purpose as a global citizen.
