40th Anniversary of Deaf Studies Division

The Deaf Studies Division at Ohlone College cordially invites you to join us in celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Ohlone College Language and Culture Center for Deaf Studies. In 1972, under the inspired leadership of George Attletweed and other visionary educators, the Deaf Studies Division at Ohlone College was opened as a way for Deaf students in the area to continue their education at an institution for higher learning. This led to the growth of language instruction in ASL and the Interpreter Preparation Program.

Now 40 years later, we invite you to join us in celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Language and Culture Center for Deaf Studies at Ohlone College. On Thursday, April 19, visit the largest and most comprehensive Deaf Studies Program in the West. Meet the award-winning faculty, visit classrooms and programs and see our new state-of the-art lab. This event is sponsored by Ohlone College and Sorenson Communications.
