International Week of the Deaf, also known as Deaf Awareness Week, is an initiative that was established by World Federation of the Deaf and first launched in Rome, Italy in 1958. The goal of the initiative is to celebrate Deaf people and this celebration takes place annually during the last full week of September. The theme for 2020’s International Week of the Deaf is “Reaffirming Deaf People’s Human Rights” (World Federation of the Deaf).  In support of the International Week of the Deaf, the Michael D. Eisner College of Education and the Department of Deaf Studies is proud to showcase our Deaf students in our Deaf Studies Department.  This is to help promote awareness of Deaf community and to celebrate Deaf people throughout the world.  As we all only have one world, we need to continue to work together in solidarity to celebrate our differences and make the world an equitable place for all.
