Sign Language Interpreting

Sign language interpreters bridge the communication gap between students who are deaf or hard of hearing and their peers and instructors, allowing them to fully participate in lectures, discussions, and other classroom activities. By providing real-time interpretation, interpreters enable students with disabilities to understand and engage with the course material, ask questions, and express their thoughts, fostering an inclusive learning environment. Moreover, having interpreters promotes social integration and equality, empowering students with disabilities to fully immerse themselves in the NDSU experience and pursue their academic goals on an equal footing with their peers.
