UNC Greensboro’s Professions in Deafness (PID) program is renowned for being the only program in the UNC System that fully prepares students to earn their interpreting license and work in professions that relate to deafness.

While in the program, students demonstrate hands-on leadership through their involved work with the academic and Deaf communities. One example of this is the upcoming Spartan Conference for Educational Interpreters (SCEI). 

SCEI, pronounced “sky,” is an annual, one-day gathering of scholars who focus on educating future teachers of the D/deaf and Educational American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters. The purpose of the conference is to provide a low-cost, relatively intimate opportunity for scholars to present not only their research, but also andragogical practices that they have found effective in training future teachers of the D/deaf or Educational ASL interpreters.
