Gallaudet University Interpretation Policy for Media
For media inquiries in which interviews with students, faculty or staff at Gallaudet are requested, a certified American Sign Language-spoken language interpreter will be required in most cases. At Gallaudet, interpreting services are provided through Gallaudet Interpreting Service (GIS), a division within the University which serves the Gallaudet community as well as external organizations.
GIS charges a per-hour rate for its services and a team of two interpreters will be required in most cases. The Office of Communications and Public Relations will work with media on a case-by-case basis to determine the exact needs for interpreting services based on the topic of the interview and the length of time requested.
Other external requests for interpreting services, including those for off-campus events not affiliated with Gallaudet University, should contact GIS directly. Gallaudet Interpreting Services website.
