In the winter of 1998, Debbye Byrne, NSC President, and her executive board members took a controversial move by reorganizing the NSC's organizational structure which included rewriting the entire NSC By-Laws. They also established NTID Student Assembly, a deliberative body of organizations and clubs, so the students can assemble and discuss the concerns within the community. This public meeting facilitates based on the parliamentary procedure of the Robert's Rule of Order.
Under the leadership of Mark Sullivan, NSC President for the 1999-2000 academic year, NTID Student Congress and NTID Student Assembly soared to new heights. The organization relocated from dormitory basement ofﬁce and meeting spaces into new multi-room headquarters located on the ﬁrst ﬂoor of NTID’s Shumway Dining Commons. NSC’s new location includes a large group meeting room, a computer lab, and spacious ofﬁces. According to Sullivan, this new visibility for NSC has allowed the greater NTID/RIT community to be a better place.
Also in 1999-2000, NTID Student Congress implemented a NSC President's Special Restructuring Committee along with Ben Clothier, NSC Parliamentarian. They hoped their restructuring helps to create a new NSC with all the flexibility and functionality of a student government that provides effective leadership and student activity opportunities.
In the spring of 2011, the 14th NTID Student Assembly finally approved an updated and revised 50 pages of the Student Body By-Laws since 2006. They also approved their own first official logo.
