Peikoff Alumni House
The Office of Alumni Relations serves as a liaison between Gallaudet University and its over twenty-three thousand alumni. The strength and dedication of alumni to the University has been ranked as one of the top reasons students come to Gallaudet.
Our proud alumni have always shown strong support to their alma mater with their generous donations and fundraising activities. In fact, the high rate of Alumni Giving is one of the critical factors that help us raise funds since corporates and foundation donors place a high emphasis on alumni support in their giving decisions.
