The primary purpose of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at RIT is to prepare deaf young adults for successful employment. A major thrust of NTID research is therefore, to determine how well these graduates are doing over time. To this end, NTID sponsors several research projects which focus on graduate follow up, including an annual alumni survey and periodic collection of data from federal data banks.
