Is a college getting ready to close its program for the deaf?

A community college in Connecticut is making changes and "advocates for the deaf are concerned" the program-the "only deaf program of its kind in the state"--is on its way out. But the school denies the changes that are underway are a sign of things to come. Read more from WNPR here.

This is an ongoing struggle in ct. If this program wont move to a more accessible location, we will lose an interpreter training school. But according to CAD, NAD lawyers say the school is providing what is needed to the students and no one has been denied services. Four students recently filed complaints. By the time this is adjudicated, we will have lost the program due to lack of program promotion and recruitment.
