The Deaf Center

The BU Wheelock Deaf Center is a hub for Deaf and signing researchers, educators, creators, and technologists to promote sign languages and Deaf cultures, and to build a world in which the human right to accessible language is realized for all Deaf children. We conduct research on how sign languages are learned and used, design sign language-based creative works and technologies that foster learning and communication, and support a network of Deaf educators and leaders in multilingual multicultural education.
