Our commitment to you is to respect the diversity of the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing signing and non-signing community, to validate your intersecting identities/culture(s), and to integrate your opinion into your academic experience.

We do this through providing academic advising, academic services, communication services, community referrals, and student life opportunities focusing on your academic and personal success.
