New ASL offerings build on Einhorn Center student-run program
By Kathy Hovis

Students who are interested in learning American Sign Language (ASL) have a number of new opportunities at Cornell this year. They can now minor in ASL, take advantage of an expanded set of upper-level classes, participate in a number of ASL events on campus and be part of an active student club.

The ASL Club, with 193 people on its email list, launched in 2012 as the Cornell University Deaf Awareness Project (CUDAP), a student-run program of the Einhorn Center for Community Engagement. Then-student Jackie Rachaf ’14 founded CUDAP after she was called to a local hospital to help nurses and police communicate with a woman using ASL.
