College students are entering a new semester, and it is important for colleges to ensure campuses provide opportunities for deaf students to thrive. Student engagement is an essential part of developing supportive environments that will lead to #DeafSuccess. In this webinar, we will learn from deaf students navigating their college experiences and examine how cross-campus relationships could (or couldn’t) increase the likelihood of deaf students feeling supported and included.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand some common barriers deaf students encounter with accessing engagement opportunities on campuses.
- Gain tools to evaluate their current infrastructure.
- Learn strategies for providing deaf students opportunities for engagement on campus, and leverage campus and community resources to build partnerships that offer spaces for these meetings.
