Addressing Student Life Issues.
Kolvitz, Marcia, Ed.
These two conference papers from the Biennial Conference on Postsecondary Education for Persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing focus on campus life issues for individuals with deafness or hard of hearing. The first paper, "A Customized Residence Hall Experience for Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing" (Nancy Kasinski and others), describes an academic residential program for students with deafness or hard of hearing at Northern Illinois University. The Hearing Impaired Interest Floor is designed to bring together students who have common interests, provide special recreational and social events including captioned tapes, provide educational programs that pertain to hearing impairment, and stimulate interaction between those students who are deaf and hard of hearing and those who are preparing for careers in working with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. "Alcohol and Other Drug Use among Post-Secondary Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students" (Kathy Sandburg), describes the Minnesota Chemical Dependency Program for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Individuals, a program designed to meet the chemical dependency treatment needs of such individuals in an environment that is cognizant of and responsive to the communication and cultural needs of individuals with deafness or hard of hearing.
