A new building for the National Technical Institute for the Deaf officially opened on the RIT campus.
The two-story building, named the Sebastian and Lenore Rosica Hall, cost $8 million dollars to build. It will serve as a research facility for students, faculty and staff. It is a deaf-friendly building, using natural light and unobstructed views to help the hearing-impaired get around.
"This hall, Rosica Hall, provides a welcoming home for those who will imagine and realize innovations that will take education and entrepreneurship to the next level," said Dr. Jeremy Haefner, RIT Provost & Senior Vice President.
Research projects are already underway in the building.
