Office of Research
Hall Memorial Building S242
The Office of Research enhances the intellectual climate on campus by encouraging, facilitating, and distributing scholarly research. We promote interdisciplinary teams within our research communities to foster diversity, equity in participation, and the inclusion of various academic disciplines. Our endeavors directly advance deaf and hard of hearing causes and cement Gallaudet’s reputation as a world leader in research.
Through strategic partnerships with research, business, and nonprofit communities, we create a culture of pragmatic collaboration and real-world understanding for our researchers. Through training and research opportunities, students leave Gallaudet as talented researchers and scholars ready to join the workforce, advance research discoveries, and positively impact both local communities and the world.
