History

According to the first Asian Deaf Club’s website, in 1988, when the number of Asian Deaf students increased in NTID/RIT, Richard Lin and Rickey Tom took a great opportunity to establish an organization for the Asian deaf students. Richard used his outstanding leadership skills and Rickey used his good business instincts to form Asian Deaf Club. However, thanks to NTID Student Congress (NSC) for recognizing the organization when the founders made the proposal for recognition. Richard and Rickey finally founded Asian Deaf Club in the spring of 1989. Asian Deaf Club has been running active and well in NTID Community for 25 years.
