International Relations (IR) advances Gallaudet’s standing as the key source for improving life for a full spectrum of global deaf identities in the following ways:

  • Teaming with University constituents to assess worldwide opportunities and to facilitate mutually beneficial cooperative agreements with foreign entities, using a cross-campus committee called the Global Opportunity Assessment League (GOAL).
  • Serving as a “global knowledge hub” by hosting campus dialogue on issues of importance, and maintaining a Global Knowledge Base with in-depth information about nations of interest.
  • Hosting select “strategic international visitors” who meet the University’s goals in at least one of three areas: expanding international enrollment, enhancing academic and intercultural exchange, or representing current or potential strategic international relations.
  • Managing the Gallaudet-Nippon Foundation World Deaf Leadership Scholarship.
  • Implementing strategic planning and policy development that enhances internationalization, such as global recruiting and curricular enrichment.
