Distinguished Alumni Award

RIT's Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes a deserving graduate of NTID or a deaf or hard-of-hearing graduate from another college of RIT. Alumni selected for the award are highly successful in their chosen field of study or career, are actively involved in and contribute to the betterment of the deaf community, and promote spirit among NTID alumni and RIT's deaf and hard-of-hearing alumni. The Distinguished Alumni Award is given annually for each college of RIT.
