Discover your true identity at Gallaudet

Caroline’s journey at Gallaudet began as a graduate student, where she found a sense of belonging and the opportunity to discover her true self.

You're not deaf anywhere else like you are at Gallaudet University.

Here at Gallaudet, she is not just deaf; she is proud of being deaf, but that’s not the first thing people generally notice about her. They think of her as Carrie, and that has changed her life.

#IAmGallaudet Stories

Explore the stories of a variety of members of our Gallaudet community.

The #IAmGallaudet campaign is part of The Gallaudet Promise, our ten-year vision to share the story from many different angles and show that there are many different ways to be deaf. These stories are moving, insightful, and often triumphant. These also reflect the importance of the space Gallaudet has offered to nurture the growth of a broad range of successful members of the deaf, hard of hearing, and signing community.
