The National Center on Deafness (NCOD) is housed in Jeanne M. Chisholm Hall on the campus of California State University, Northridge. Established in 1962, NCOD was the first postsecondary program in the nation to provide paid professional sign language interpreters for deaf and hard-of-hearing students as well as captioning services as requested. The program has grown to be the largest of its type in the western United States, serving approximately 200 students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing each year. NCOD also provides transition services, academic and career planning, tutorial assistance, and cocurricular events for the students. Additionally, NCOD provides outreach and training through a federal grant.
