The increasing numbers of deaf students in postsecondary education place a strain on the institution's resources. To obtain information on how U.S. colleges and universities address this problem, all institutions having significant numbers of deaf students were sent a questionnaire. The results of the survey reveal an awareness of assistive listening devices and depict a variety of approaches to recruiting, orienting, and supervising sign-language interpreters. In addition, the sale of assistive listening devices is briefly discussed. Models for managing interpreter services are examined with respect to their advantages and disadvantages.
