Answer: The Deaf President Now Movement.
In 1988, Gallaudet University was the only university on earth created for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. When the Board of Trustees elected Elizabeth A. Zinser, a hearing person as president instead of the deaf applicants, students took control of their campus.
Their main request was a Deaf president to head Gallaudet, and as a result, Dr. I. King Jordan was appointed as president.
