Created by the Greater Washington Partnership and brought to Gallaudet University’s campus in 2022, the Capital CoLAB project aims to fill the nation’s technology skills gap with digitally fluent college graduates.

Gallaudet University students who are eager to elevate their resumes to the top of the applicant pile will now have the opportunity to enroll in a Digital Tech Credential Program that delivers those skills.
