To conduct a two day summit conference of 50 leaders in the field of support service provision for postsecondary deaf students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs. Fifteen of these experts were drawn from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and Greater Rochester Metropolitan Area.
The primary outcome was a report on the current state of the art of on-line remote interpreting and captioning. Additionally, a recommendation report was prepared that specified the characteristics of a multimedia cyberinfrastructure that provides remote communication support for deaf and hard-of-hearing students in STEM mainstreamed classrooms.
