THE ARC OF GLOBAL GALLAUDET

By virtue of its long history and deep expertise, Gallaudet University provides abundant opportunities for global learning and engagement. For students, participating in our diverse international campus life opens their hearts and minds, moving them towards “global citizenship”– a mindset that is essential in the modern workplace and community.

As the nucleus of Global Gallaudet, “Global Learning for All” serves as a springboard for fostering cross-cultural relationships and mutually beneficial engagements with other societies. This aligns with the Gallaudet Promise to create a better quality of life for deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind people, and all of humanity. The Arc of Global Gallaudet is indeed promising!
