Global Learning for All

Step out of your comfort zone. Step into a whole new world!

Global Learning for All is “the process of diverse people collaboratively analyzing and addressing complex problems that transcend borders.” At Gallaudet, we are resolute about improving conditions that impact the quality of life for people across the spectrum of Deaf identities – the “grand challenges” around language, access, and life opportunities.

As the nucleus for a Global Gallaudet, global learning prepares students for “global citizenship.” All students — on campus or abroad, in person or virtual– will find dynamic global learning experiences that promote:

  • Intercultural competence.
  • Problem-solving tools and knowledge.
  • Self-reflection and critical thinking by engaging across cultures.
