Paving the way for Gallaudet’s future

The Office of the President prioritizes transformation, collaboration, diversity, equity, and innovation within the university to advance our students’ dreams and aspirations.

Through these strategic priorities, we establish an environment where faculty and staff become leaders in academia and students flourish in their studies and research. Altogether, our GU community functions as leaders for the deaf and hard of hearing communities worldwide.

We value:

  • Transformative leadership: Understanding our global reach in leadership and innovation, we own our responsibility to represent self-determination and empowerment for deaf and hard of hearing people everywhere.
  • Inclusive Excellence: We are building an equitable, empathetic, and inclusive institution through the advancement of diverse thoughts, values, histories, policies, and practices.
  • Exceptional Teamwork: The joint effort of colleagues within our office, across divisions, and externally speak to our dedicated work in the service of advancing the University.
