Module Description

This presentation is designed to help higher education professionals learn more about practices to improve campus wide access for deaf students by modeling a centralized system approach. While more than 200,000 deaf students attend colleges nationwide, colleges and universities are often not prepared to support deaf students at all levels of the college experience. Centralized systems, policies, and procedures can benefit schools by creating practical approaches that reduce potential gaps in a student’s education, avoid legal ramifications, and support inclusion of diverse student populations. Join the National Deaf Center and the National Association of the Deaf to learn more about strategies that your school can implement to cultivate #DeafSuccess!

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Review federal accessibility laws impacting colleges and universities
  • Compare practices of decentralized vs. centralized approaches to accessibility services
  • List resources to support ongoing evaluation of campus accessibility and inclusion for deaf students
