The American Sign Language Program at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, currently under the umbrella of the Linguistics Department, works to identify each student’s unique strengths and use them as a basis for learning language and the development of ASL skills and knowledge. We provide opportunity for involvement by supporting individual empowerment whereby all students; faculty and staff are accepted and valued as assets to our program.
