The Regional Resource Center on Deafness is housed in the College of Education along with the Divisions of Deaf Studies and Professional Studies, Teacher Education, and Health and Exercise Science. For over 50 years we have been writing grants to support students in fields such as interpreter training, deaf and hard of hearing education, and rehabilitation counseling. Grant awards from the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) and the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) allow us to provide over $620,000 each year in stipends and tuition remissions for students in our undergraduate ASL/English Interpreting Program, our graduate level Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling Program, and our month-long Rehabilitation Counseling with Deaf and Hard of Hearing Adults certificate program. 

In addition to student support, we also provide outreach and technical assistance to interpreters through the Western Region Interpreter Education Center (a part of the National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers, funded by RSA), and to adult settings such as colleges and vocational rehabilitation programs that are unfamiliar with providing access to individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, and deaf with co-occurring disabilities through a contract with Pepnet 2.
