Welcome to the Center on Deafness

Established in June 1998, the Center on Deafness provides an array of research and collaborative partnership opportunities related to deafness and disability issues. The center focuses on disseminating knowledge and effective practices related to deafness, establishing and maintaining professional networks, and collaborating with academic and service programs.

Through annual funding of approximately $2 million from external sources, the center has established relationships with postsecondary institutions, rehabilitation agencies, and educational systems in thirteen states across the region, and the State of Tennessee.

The center is a part of the Department of Theory and Practice in Teacher Education in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences. It is also affiliated with the college’s Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling.
