3 Mission Statement/Goals
The ASL Club mission is to create a place for all students and those who seek knowledge and want to raise awareness of American Sign Language, the Deaf Community, and Deaf Culture. As the American Sign Language Club, our goals are to increase the opportunities for students to practice American Sign Language in settings outside of the classroom, host events and trips relevant to students wishing to learn about American Sign Language and the culture that surrounds it, and encourage fellowship among the Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing.
