CCC helping to create national-model program for deaf stem students

Camden County College is partnering with Rochester Institute of Technology and Cornell University to develop a virtual academic community (VAC) for deaf and hard-of-hearing (D/HH) science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students. They are doing so using a five-year National Science Foundation grant of $1.6 million that was awarded by the NSF’s Research in Disability Education Program to RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
The goal of the project is to increase the graduation rates of D/HH students who are majoring in STEM programs. Once completed, this project will serve as a model for similar programs to be developed for collegiate and high school students throughout the nation.
