Gallaudet was established and is maintained through the Education of the Deaf Act in order to provide programs that will improve the lives of deaf people.

  1. Functional similarity: 
    1. Public or private 4 year and above
    2. Liberal arts university or college
    3. Size (less than 3,000 students)
