Bringing College Accessibility and Inclusion into Focus: A Survey of Deaf Student Perspective

The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) conducted a nationwide survey on accessibility for deaf students attending postsecondary institutions. In late February we will release a report called ACCESS Is More Than Accommodations: 2018–2019 Deaf College Student National Accessibility Report detailing our findings. In this report, we share ratings of accessibility across several access categories and by various demographic characteristics. NDC’s Research and Data team analyzed data collected using a cross-classified multilevel modeling statistical technique to understand how rating may have differed based on student or institutional characters. Graduate Research Assistants, Paige Johnson and Claire Ryan, doctoral students at the University of Texas at Austin, will be presenting results at the 46th Annual Association of College Educators—Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ACE-DHH) International Conference. Key findings include:

  • The majority of deaf students are using more than one accommodation.
  • Deaf students at specialized institutions designed for deaf students rate accessibility 18% higher than deaf students at mainstream institutions.
  • Deaf students of color and deafdisabled students have more negative experiences with college accessibility than deaf white students and deaf students without disabilities
