The Deaf Student in Higher Institituions of Learning--A Study of Policies and Attitudes of Admissions Officers in New England Colleges and Universities.
Goldin, George J.; And Others
A questionnaire was mailed to all 195 4-year colleges and universities, junior colleges, and professional schools in the New England states to obtain information about their attitudes and policies toward the admission of deaf students. Among the 70 percent of the schools who repsonded to the survey, policies towards deaf students who were able to talk were somewhat negative and admission criteria for the deaf unable to talk were definitely restrictive. The main reason given for the negative policies was the limited facilities of the institutions. Students generally applied to schools with larger student bodies, residential accomodations, good physical facilities, greater choice of electives, higher tuition, and advance degree availability. The questionnaire and a bibliography are appended. Numerous tables present the data. (BC)
