Dr. Lore Kinast is a change agent working to address accessibility barriers that deaf students face in higher education settings. Her interest in education and employment access for deaf people initially began when she worked as an employment development specialist and experienced the struggles her deaf clients endured with finding a job. It was further propelled while managing programs and coordinating services including interpreting, captioning, and other accommodations for deaf students at several colleges. She has spent over 25 years collaborating with stakeholders on all levels, designing accessible opportunities using short and long term goals, implementing systemic benchmarks, and spearheading program development projects. Currently, Lore is the Co-Chair for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Knowledge and Practice Community with the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD). She received her master’s degree from California State University, Northridge in Educational Administration, and an EdD in Higher Education Administration from Texas Tech University.
