The last week in September has been celebrated annually since 1958 as the International Week of the Deaf, intended to raise awareness about the Deaf community at the individual, community and governmental level. This year’s theme is Full Inclusion.

To commemorate this week, RIT will raise the Sign Union flag at 8:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22, with a gathering 3:30 p.m. in front of the SAU.
