 Annual Report 2005 
, you will find narrative and tables of data that reflect the enormouspride we take in the programs offered by RIT/NTID. We know that the support – the financial supportand the guidance – provided by you, by your staff in the Department of Education, and by the Presidentand the Congress, sustain our efforts on behalf of college-age deaf and hard-of-hearing students.We cannot over-emphasize the word ‘students’ for they are at the heart of the magic performed everyday at our institution. Our students are truly a national student body, for NTID students represent everyregion of the country and almost every state.As NTID moves forward, it is guided by the broad mission established many years ago:
To provide deaf and hard-of-hearing students with outstanding state-of-the-art technical and  professional education programs, complemented by a strong liberal arts and sciencescurriculum, that prepare them to live and work in the mainstream of a rapidly changing global community and enhance their lifelong learning.
As we move ahead, we are implementing strategic plans that will take us to year 2010. We will slowlymove toward programs that lead to a larger percentage of baccalaureate students while continuing toprovide associate-level programs, work to create strong referral and transfer programs with communitycolleges, enhance access services for our students, and increase outreach activities.We will do these things while entering year number four of a five-year plan to reduce our budget by $1million per year, totaling $5 million over five years. We strongly believe that the planned, careful steps weare executing demonstrate the wise fiscal stewardship that we exercise with the federal funds we receivethrough your support.You know that you have the thanks of everyone associated with RIT/NTID – students, faculty, staff, andall other friends of the institute – for the support you demonstrate for our programs.With warm regards,Albert J. Simone T. Alan HurwitzPresident, RIT Vice President, RIT for NTIDDean, NTID
