6 In the News: the responsibility often falls on individual students to arrange for their own interpreters.” “Presently, there is no centralized system to pay for sign language interpreters at extracurricular events, and the responsibility often falls on individual students to arrange for their own interpreters.” it’s a battle, not necessarily with the ARC, but with the departments here because it is all about money,” “If I ask for interpreters, it’s through the Academic Resource Center, and it’s a battle, not necessarily with the ARC, but with the departments here because it is all about money,” Heather Artinian (COL’15) previously told the Voice.

7 In the News: ''I find it very frustrating,'' said Collins, speaking in sign language translated by an interpreter. ‘'I feel I have to fight for everything.... I can't relax and have a regular college experience.'‘ ''Social learning - discussion in a cafe, discussion with a professor - shouldn't be considered incidental,'' said Ruth Bork, director of the Disabilities Resource Center at Northeastern. ''It's part and parcel of what you come to college for. It contributes to your growth, to figuring out who you are.''

8 PN2 Needs Assessment Report Another trend that professionals have noted as a concern is that it is difficult to determine who is paying for the resources available to students who are DHH. One focus group, discussed this in depth, and they tended to agree that the services requested by students are available, but that they are difficult to implement, because there are challenges to finding who would be financially responsible for the service. The professionals believed that the bureaucracy and lack of coordination between departments of the institution created difficulties in attaining financial support for services requested.

10 PN2 Needs Assessment Report “I think something that frustrates me is when people start doing finger pointing as to who is responsible for providing this, who is paying for this... Is it the faculty? Is it the department? Is it the college? Is it I.T.? Is it disability services?... It would be nice if we could get past the finger pointing because it is the responsibility of the institution.”(professional)
