It's a special year for the National Technical Institute for the Deaf.  The college at RIT is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year and the unveiling of a start-of-the-art building.

Like the campus itself, the new Sebastian and Lenore Rosica Hall brings the deaf and hearing worlds together. It provides them with the tools to do research at the undergraduate level.

The Rosicas were life-long advocates for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. Lenore Rosica worked as a speech pathologist and her husband, Sebastian, worked as an audiologist for 40 years at St. Mary's School for the Deaf.
