uToronto urged to hire interpreter co-ordinator for deaf students

May 26, 2009

Students held a rally outside the University of Toronto's accessibility services building last Wednesday to protest the inaccessibility issues deaf students face. The rally's organizer, the only deaf undergraduate student at uToronto's downtown campus, would like to see the university hire an interpreter co-ordinator. uToronto stopped hiring on-call interpreters 2 years ago, leaving deaf students to find their own. The student had to drop some courses this year because she couldn't find an interpreter. Rabble
