RIT and University of Rochester has developed a partnership to create an awareness about an issue and hopefully, one, that they hope to solve: getting students who are deaf and/or hard of hearing to become scientist. On May 2, 2014, they uploaded a promotional video on YouTube called “Are you Deaf or Hard of Hearing? Do you want to become a scientist?”. In this video, they detailed how with the Rochester Bridges to Doctorate program, students who are interested in becoming a scientist is more possible.
