March 6, 2019, SWCID faculty, staff and Students traveled to Austin to testify before the Texas Higher Education Committee showing support for HB 1101. The Bill proposes a name change from SouthWest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf to SouthWest College for the Deaf. This Bill was introduced by longtime SWCID supporter Representative Drew Darby. The passage of this bill will more accurately reflect the mission and purpose of the college.
