Graduate School Mission Statement

The Graduate School at Gallaudet University draws on Gallaudet's rich heritage, distinguished faculty and staff, and ASL-English bilingual environment to carry out its multifaceted mission to:

  • prepare deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing scholars, leaders, and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to excel in their professions and disciplines; and
  • generate knowledge, via research and other scholarly activities to inform theory and practice in the professions and disciplines represented by graduate programs.

The knowledge, skills, and dispositions addressed in the various graduate programs are aligned with professional accreditation standards as well as the Graduate School's own high academic expectations.
