This paper takes a look at the higher learning institutions available in the United States for the hearing impaired. It focuses on two schools--The National Technical Institute for the Deaf and Gallaudet University. It gives a history of the schools and discusses the many challenges they face today in providing top class education for a limited community.
From the Paper:"Although many colleges offer programs that cater to the deaf and hearing-impaired, there are few that exist to serve them almost exclusively. Two of the most widely known of education establishments for the deaf and hearing-impaired are The National Technical Institute for the Deaf and Gallaudet University. Of the 7889 full-time students and 3400 part-time students enrolled in The National Technical Institute for the Deaf in 1999, only 960 are full-time deaf students. In contrast, of the 1365 full-time students enrolled the same year at Gallaudet University, 1188 of those are deaf, and 138 of its 220 part-time students are deaf (Gallaudet Research Institute)."
