International Strategic Visitors Program
Building 103 #304
The International Strategic Visitor Program (ISVP) strives to develop international partnerships through student recruiting and academic exchanges between Gallaudet and selected international visitors. The program is overseen by the Office of International Affairs, which works with the offices of the university President, Provost, Faculty, and other offices to evaluate international visitors through strategic opportunities for both parties and determine the visitor’s potential to be a part of the ISVP.
Visitors are always warmly welcomed to Gallaudet University’s historic campus in Washington, D.C., a world-renowned institution of higher learning that educates, trains, and empowers deaf and hard of hearing people and those who work with them. Gallaudet is also home to the federally funded Laurent Clerc Deaf Education Center, whose mission is to raise the achievement of deaf and hard of hearing students ages birth-21 nationwide by supporting their families and professionals who work with these students.
Please submit a completed Visit Support Request Form to allow sufficient time to arrange for services of this nature, requests must be made at least four weeks before a visit.
