About Us.

In Fall 2013, a number of students formed a friendship over their mutual appreciation and interest in American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture. As a result of their desire to bring increased exposure to ASL on the Princeton campus, academically and socially, they formed the Princeton University American Sign Language Club (PUASL).


The Princeton University American Sign Language Club aims to promote and encourage, amongst its members and the Princeton University Community at large:

  • Mastery and understanding of the art of communicating in American Sign Language.
  • Heightened awareness of the Deaf community, culture, and history.
  • Increased understanding and interaction between the Deaf and Hearing communities.
  • Advocacy for Deaf accessibility on campus.
