    Hurwitz – �People look up to Gallaudet University because it�s a pillar of the deaf community,� said T. Alan Hurwitz, dean of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology. Hurwitz added that he thought the controversy had more to do with the selection process than a split over deaf culture.

    Very interesting to read this

    u got such good eyes – yeah that quote from the chart in the next entry of this blogsite comes from Oct 31, 2006 Los Angeles Times “Protesters Vow to Keep University Barricaded” article

    i thought it was super cool to re-read that quote from Dr. Hurwitz when posting up that old chart. Thanks for making note of it.
