Deaf and Hard of Hearing
The mission of the Program in the Education of the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing is to prepare scholarly professionals who will approach teaching, learning, and research as a dialogic, ever evolving, life-long process of inquiry and "coming to know". The Program, along with others in the community of educators of individuals who are d/Deaf or hard of hearing, seeks to educate preservice, in-service, and leadership personnel so that they might become knowledgeable about and actively engaged in research concerning the personal, social, cultural, and pedagogical ramifications associated with being d/Deaf or having a hearing loss. It seeks to educate these preservice, in-service, and leadership personnel in various research methodologies (both quantitative as well as qualitative) in order to explore new and enduring questions concerning the lives, well-being and pedagogy of individuals who are d/Deaf or hard of hearing.

The program recognizes and respects the notion of diversity racial, ethnic, as well as, linguistic diversity. Furthermore, it recognizes that diversity exists not only between and among cultures and groups of individuals, but within them as well. As for the population of individuals who are d/Deaf or hard of hearing, we recognize that it, too, is extremely diverse. As a result, the students in the program are expected to become knowledgeable about and practiced in those notions and skills associated with the oral/aural approach, total communication, sign supported speech, and bilingual biculturalism, including issues relating to Deaf Culture, American Sign Language, and other signing systems.
