Interpreting Services (GIS)  Email:

The mission of GIS is to provide comprehensive information access through exemplary interpreting services. 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.

We provide professional interpreting services, including close-vision and tactile interpreting services, to students, faculty, staff and teachers for Gallaudet-sponsored events as requested. Although GIS is primarily a campus resource, it also provides interpreters to the community, including services to students attending the Washington area consortium of universities, for internships, and for other activities in the immediate Washington metropolitan area.

GIS provides workshops on a variety of topics and provides mentoring, training, and supervision to practicum and intern interpreting students and freelance interpreters.

If you want to request an interpreter through GIS, please check with the relevant campus department to make this request. We also welcome your direct feedback and preferences regarding your interpreting service on campus.

The GIS offices are open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
