Dave Coyne

Language Access and Inclusion Director

In his role as Language Access and Inclusion Director, Dave manages development, outreach, and advocacy for HASA’s interpreting and sign language education programs.

Prior to joining HASA, Dave worked in various roles supporting best practices in the interpreting field, mainly as an interpreter educator with a focus on interpreting skill development topics related to power, privilege, and oppression.  His most recent position was as an assistant professor at the University of Louisville.

His sixteen years of teaching experience and his work as an ASL interpreter and conference presenter have furthered his research interests:  social justice, allyship, and leadership topics in the interpreting field. Specifically, he is interested in the promotion of critical thinking, community-building, and principles of social justice that can re-establish, maintain and strengthen connections between interpreters and those who work with them.

Dave holds a doctorate in Urban Education Leadership from the University of Cincinnati, a Master of Arts and a Bachelor of Applied Science from Siena Heights University, and completed an ASL Interpreter Training Program at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.
