    Promoting Doesn’t Hurt is a project aimed at people who want science beyond the university walls. As part of the project, students and doctoral students participate in activities that advance education and present the world of science in a way that is accessible to people outside the academic community. The project is organized by the National Representation of Doctoral Students with financial support from the Ministry of Education and Science.

    Few of the deaf and hard of hearing choose to study

    A student at the Wroclaw University of Life Sciences, Susanna Chikaj, with a team of five people, prepared the “Studia na migi” project. The aim of this initiative is to generalize university education among the deaf and hard of hearing. And the larger the number of such students in Poland was in the range of 1100-1400 people for several years. This is not much if we take into account that the number of deaf people in our country is estimated at 500,000, and another 900,000. severe hearing

    We had one common goal – to contribute to building a better world for the deaf. We are trying to popularize studies, media, and undertake initiatives that have a positive impact on the reality of these people. We hope that our actions will help people who want to study make this decision.

    A website for those interested in studying

    One of the most important effects of working on the project is a special website where the deaf or hard of hearing can learn all about the offer of Polish universities. Information regarding potential facilities or recruitment awaits those interested, of course, along with films in sign language.

    Not many people know that universities are better prepared to educate and support deaf people.

    The site also includes alumni shots, i.e. stories of people talking about how problems arising from disability were dealt with at the university.

    This is not the end of the project’s activities

    Zuzanna Czekaj does not hide that the initiative is still under development.

    We have already been able to do a lot, but there is still a lot to be done, so we want to continue and develop the project. The closest plans include: Starting cooperation with institutions and associations that bring together deaf and hard of hearing people – so that our upcoming initiatives meet their needs.
