The mission of GIS is to provide comprehensive information access through exemplary interpreting services. Since 1990, the highest commitment of GIS is to meet the interpreting needs of the Gallaudet University community. Additionally, GIS is committed to being a model of interpreting excellence both locally and nationwide. With commitment, professionalism, experience and a strong sense of customer service, GIS provides more than 80,000 hours of interpreting services annually.
GIS has certified professionals to work in a wide array of settings which include:
