Students Linked to the Education of the Deaf (SLED) welcomes all students interested in working with and learning about individuals who are Deaf and hard of hearing. Our goal is to raise money to send children and youth with a hearing loss to Camp HERO (Here Everyone Really is One) — a philosophy we have adopted as a campus organization.
By raising awareness of the diverse needs of deaf and hard of hearing people we hope to improve their quality of life.
