Our Mission

Students walking past spring trees

 

As a comprehensive college, we collaborate with our professional communities in preparing educators, leaders, and Deaf service providers to serve as agents of positive social change. We give access to professional careers for students with diverse identities and backgrounds, and contribute to their personal growth. We provide informed advice and applied research services to the local educational community.
