Deaf college students across the country continue to feel left out and overlooked on campus. In a report released last week by the National Deaf Center, deaf students rated accessibility at their campus at a 3.2 out of 5. Let’s change that.
“There has been no institutional interest in learning how to become more deaf friendly. The attitude is one of begrudging tolerance at best.”
Deaf students across the country echoed this student’s story in the 2018-2019 Deaf College Student National Accessibility Report, “ACCESS Is More Than Accommodations,” released today by the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes.
