Scope and Content Note:The bulk of this collection relates to events organized by the Deaf Club, most notably the annual Deaf Awareness Week, including planning information and marketing documents, such as posters and fliers.

Historical Note:The Northeastern University Deaf Club existed in an unofficial capacity during the fall semester of 1990, and it became an officially recognized special interest organization in the spring semester of 1991. The mission of the Deaf Club was to provide support to deaf and hearing impaired students in their academic pursuits, promote awareness of the deaf community, help deaf and hearing impaired students acclimate to the Northeastern campus, and provide a social forum for deaf and hearing impaired students on campus. The Deaf Club organized a yearly Deaf Awareness Week (DAW) held in late September, consisting of games and activities to promote awareness of deaf students on campus. The Deaf Club is still active on the Northeastern campus as a resource for students involved in the American Sign Language and Interpreter Training programs.
