Abstract

The Rochester Institute of Technology is a unique environment; a large number of hearing-impaired students are enrolled on a predominately hearing campus. The authors of this article explored the integration of deaf and hearing students on the campus and the attitudes surrounding deaf-hearing relationships. The major factors that hearing students identified as contributors to positive interaction between the two groups included awareness of cultural diversity, communication sensitivity and development of effective communication skills, structured opportunities for interaction, and mutual accommodation and respect.
