Meet The Faculty
Faculty play a pivotal role in the delivery of a world-class learning experience. Faculty who are engaged and understand the complex challenges faced by interpreters working in public health settings can prepare practitioners to respond in ways that contribute to reducing health disparities within the Deaf community. Faculty also play a crucial role in creating and supporting a diverse workforce of interpreters. To foster an inclusive, welcoming culture for all students and staff members, it is essential to have an educator workforce that reflects the diversity of the students and communities we serve.Meet the Faculty
