Global Engagement

The World is in your Hands

Global Engagement starts here

Gallaudet’s Global Engagement advances learning, research, and service opportunities to meet the challenges facing deaf and hard of hearing people and the planet. Via global learning, Gallaudet gains understanding and trust with people in other societies, and thus becomes prepared to ethically engage in actions leading towards social justice–on campus, in Washington, D.C., and around the world.
