Clark State to Host Social Event for Hard-of-Hearing, Deaf Community

September 12, 2023

The Clark State College Diversity Committee in partnership with the Clark State Student Affairs team will host a Deaf Social Event on Friday, September 22.

Members of the deaf / deaf-blind / hard-of-hearing community are welcome to come together to engage, network and have a good time. Individuals will enjoy games and light snack and refreshments while networking with their peers. Diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It is understanding that each individual is unique, and our individual differences need to be recognized.

“We are excited to offer an opportunity for Clark State faculty, staff, and students to interact with the deaf, deaf-blind, and hard-of-hearing community,” said Dr. Melinda Mohler, professor of history and CCP faculty academic coordinator at Clark State.
“Students in our American Sign Language (ASL) courses will be able to put what they have learned into practice in real-life situations through a variety of games and activities.  Interpreters will also be available.”

The event will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, September 22 in the LRC Community Room 207/209, on the main campus in Springfield, 570 East Leffel Lane.

The event is free and open to the community, but registration is encouraged at:
