Biographical / Historical

The National Technical Institute for the Deaf, one of nine colleges at RIT, was established by an act of Congress and signed into law by President Johnson in 1965. After an extensive national search, RIT was chosen as the permanent home for NTID, and the first group of students arrived in Fall 1968.

NTID Performing Arts was established in the Fall of 1974, with the opening of the Institute's new permanent buildings, as an integral part of the Institute's curriculum following the success of the student drama club founded by Dr. Robert Panara in 1969. Originally named the Experimental Educational Theatre (EET), NTID Performing Arts offers a comprehensive curriculum of theatre courses and produces 6 productions and one outreach tour per season.
