About Us

Ebony Club is an organization at NTID/RIT that helps and serves Black Deaf/Hard of Hearing students.

The purpose of Ebony Club is to understand and acquire knowledge of our black history and culture.

We allow opportunity to develop leadership skills and to provide a space for socialization and learning experiences.

Ebony Club serves under Black Awareness Coordinating Committee.

  2. To teach and encourage Black students to be productive achievers in the political as well as the academic and professional arenas.
  3. To create a family of conscious and concerned brothers and sisters for Black students to interact with on a social as well as intellectual level-in a world, to promote the Jamaall concept.
