Exploring the Experiences of Deaf Student Athletes at a Deaf University
There is minimal research regarding deaf student athletes who play sports for National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) institutions. Thus, little is known about the experiences of deaf student athletes. This qualitative case study seeks to explore the experiences of a select group of deaf student athletes who attend Gallaudet University, the world's only university designed specifically for deaf and hard of hearing people. Potential findings from this study will contribute to the limited literature and provide stakeholders with a better understanding of this specific population of NCAA student athletes.
