Technological Education Center for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students (DeafTEC)
DeafTEC's goal is to increase the number of deaf and hard-of-hearing (deaf/hh) individuals in highly skilled technician jobs where they are currently underrepresented and underutilized. DeafTEC serves as a national resource for high schools and community colleges that educate deaf/hh students in STEM-related programs and for employers hiring deaf/hh individuals. DeafTEC is a National Science Foundation-funded Center of Excellence that focuses on a particular audience, deaf and hard-of-hearing students, rather than on a technical discipline. DeafTEC is administered by faculty at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, one of the nine colleges of the Rochester Institute of Technology, and overseen by a National Visiting Committee made up of professionals in academia and industry.
