DHH Home

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing program supports students and related programs on and off campus. The overall purpose of DHH is to promote activities and awareness that will enhance or elevate the quality of education for students who are deaf and hard of hearing.

Silent Bucs is a registered student organization that provides an atmosphere where students who are deaf and hard of hearing, along with other students, can plan and maintain projects of interest related to students in the education process.

Interpreting Services are provided within the classroom or the campus community (including extra-curricular activities such as lectures, plays, student organizations, etc.) Upon receiving a request for services, the Interpreter Coordinator will assess, assign, or coordinate appropriate interpreting services according to the level of skill required for the assignment. A variety of outreach opportunities are also available for sign language interpreters wishing to maintain or upgrade their level of competency. These services are provided as a means of enabling academic success for students who are deaf and hard of hearing.

Support Services are given to provide appropriate assistance to students who are deaf or hard of hearing through services which empower the student (such as self-advocacy) by making successful decisions that ultimately affect his/her collegiate experience.
