American Sign Language Club (ASL Club)

The Santa Barbara City College's American Sign Language (ASL) Club was founded in the Spring of 2007 and has been growing as a vital part of the SBCC community ever since. The club was voted Santa Barbara City College Outstanding Club of the Year in 2009.

The SBCC ASL Club's vision is to raise awareness of American Sign Language as a distinct language and promote understanding of the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing community’s unique identity.

Its mission is to create a space for all learners to practice American Sign Language. The club serves as a bridge to build relationships between the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing community and all those who want to learn ASL by hosting and supporting inclusive educational opportunities and interactions.

Like all clubs on campus, the club is run by students and uses the following core values to guide its endeavors:


The club is an excellent way to learn more about American Sign Language. We encourage and welcome you to become involved!
