NTID History

This webpage, compiled by the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, lists milestones in NTID’s history. NTID began operations in 1968 to provide deaf and hard-of-hearing students with technical and professional education programs, complemented by a liberal arts and sciences curriculum, that prepares them to live and work in the mainstream of a rapidly changing global community and enhances their lifelong learning. Gerard Buckley, Dr. Robert R. Davila, Dr. T. Alan Hurwitz, Robert F. Panara, Greg Pollock, and Lizzie Sorkin, all of whom are Deaf, are among the firsts chronicled in NTID’s history.
