Director of Diversity and Special Programs
Shana Gibbs joins the American School for the Deaf with an extensive background moderating thoughtful discussions on topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Her prior experience as a university lecturer, combined with her dual master’s degrees in Deaf Education and Educational Leadership and Policy, have prepared her with the skills and knowledge to design, develop and implement initiatives to support a successful learning environment for students.
Gibbs will lead the development and implementation of proactive diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in alignment with the school’s mission and strategic plan. In addition to leading ASD’s Diversity Task Force, Gibbs will also oversee the school’s Source Interpreting program while supporting the continual development of the ASL/English Bilingual approach in the classroom.
