NTID Experts Selected For NACE’s Web Seminar

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 4 – Two experts from RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf were selected to present for the National Association of College and Employers (NACE) Encore Series because of their expertise in college relations and recruitment regarding students with disabilities.

Allen Vaala, director of NTID’s Center on Employment, and Lynne Morley, senior employment specialist, earlier this year presented “Students with Disabilities: Employers and Career Service Make the Match” during the NACE national meeting, where attendees rated it very highly.

Vaala and Morley will repeat the presentation, offering strategies that employers can use to integrate employees with disabilities into the workplace, during a web seminar later this year. They will discuss methods, practices, and procedures college career service centers can use to build relationships with employers that lead to employment of students with disabilities. Vaala and Morley will use their considerable experience with deaf and hard-of-hearing students at the NTID Center on Employment as a model.

Rochester Institute of Technology is internationally recognized as a leader in computing, engineering, imaging technology, fine and applied arts, and for providing unparalleled support services for students with hearing loss. RIT is home to the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, where more than 1,100 students with hearing loss from around the world study, live, and socialize with 14,400 hearing students on RIT’s Rochester, N.Y., campus. U.S. News and World Report has consistently ranked RIT among the nation’s leading comprehensive universities.
