Iona College American Sign Language Club
Mission and Purpose
The Iona College American Sign Language Club focuses on teaching American Sign Language (ASL) and bringing awareness about deaf culture to the students of Iona College. Our goal is to create an environment that allows students to acquire the skills of ASL through instruction and practice. This, combined with knowledge of the deaf and hard of hearing, will enable club members to apply American Sign Language in their own lives.
