Biographical / Historical

The NTID Media Productions collection is now known as Media Relations. Media Relations is a liaison between RIT/NTID and external media, pitching and writing stories of interest about our students, faculty, staff or NTID in general. This includes being accessible for outside newspaper, magazine, television or radio reporters and connecting them with experts on campus who may give interviews or provide written information that assists reporters with specific stories related to RIT/NTID.
