NTID Student Life Team



About Us

Student Life Team Mission Statement:

The Student Life Team is exceptional in its success in supporting, advocating for and with, and challenging deaf, hard of hearing, deafblind, deaf disabled, and late deafen college students, while establishing and maintaining an ethic of care and concern for and in this environment. All of this leading to a significant and positive quality of academic and social life on campus.

The Student Life Team (SLT) challenges and educates all deaf and hard-of-hearing students, providing resources and support for their 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 their 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.
