The Sign Language Club, also known as Sigma Lambda Kappa (SLK), is a registered student organization at UA Little Rock. Club members are students who are taking classes in the Interpretation: ASL/English Program. Many are working toward an associate’s degree or B.A. degree in interpretation. Others are taking American Sign Language classes to satisfy second language requirements at the university.
SLK seeks to provide the UA Little Rock campus with an organization of persons who share a common interest in communication between individuals who are hearing, Deaf, DeafBlind, or Hard of Hearing. Club members participate in informal social environments and activities that promote interaction on campus and in the community. The organization also promotes “Deaf Awareness” and educational information that help the public learn about deafness and the language and cultural issues associated with it.
Business meetings are held bi-monthly during the fall and spring semesters. SLK elects a governing board of officers each year. Each semester, SLK sponsors “See-A-Song”, a public relations performance of songs presented in sign language. Students at all levels of language acquisition and community members are encouraged to participate in the performance under the direction of faculty members.
