Deaf Pride is a student organization that celebrates and promotes Deaf culture and awareness on campus. Deaf Pride is a fun group that has members who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, hearing, students enrolled in ASL and interpreting classes, and people who are interested in Deaf culture, awareness, and American Sign Language.
Our new mission statement is:
"Bridging the gap between Deaf and hearing ... step into a world of cultural equality"
...and we really hope we serve that purpose!
Deaf Pride is recognized by the NIU Student Association and is open to all members of the Northern Illinois University Community.
