New campus unit supports research and international activities Research Support and International Affairs

MISSION: The Office of Research Support and International Affairs strives to fulfill Gallaudet University’s mission to encourage, promote, and facilitate scholarly research, and to offer and oversee international and intercultural education opportunities for Gallaudet students and faculty, as well as the global community.

Three longstanding campus units have merged, combining their expertise to more effectively fulfill the University’s mission to enhance scholarly research and engage the global deaf community.

The support functions of the Gallaudet Research Institute (GRI), Office of International Relations, and Office of International Programs and Services (OIPS) have come together to form a new unit entitled Research Support and International Affairs (RSIA). The office is located in Dawes House and is under the auspices of the associate provost for research and dean of the graduate school, continuing studies, and international affairs.

The purpose of RSIA is to enhance Gallaudet’s intellectual climate through enriching scholarly opportunities on the Gallaudet campus and beyond. RSIA staff facilitates faculty, staff, and student research by providing editing assistance with grant proposals and by administering the Priority Research and Small Grants programs. Further, the unit promotes achievements of this nature by reporting on the University’s contributions to research and scholarship. In addition, the unit maintains the longstanding Annual Survey of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children and Youth and research and activity on language planning.

A second emphasis of RSIA is to offer and oversee international and intercultural education opportunities for students and faculty. The unit also serves as the point of contact for international partnerships, visitors, and scholars.
