Gallaudet University Organization

Gallaudet operates under the direction of a president appointed by the  Gallaudet Board of Trustees as the chief executive officer of the campus. The president develops campus policy through broadly based consultative procedures that include students, faculty, staff, and administrators in decision-making.
