Message from Dr. McCaskill
Greetings from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion!
On March 6, 2012 the Office of Diversity and Inclusion hosted its final campus-wide dialogue for the 2011-2012 academic year to gather additional feedback from the community on the four recommendations for Communication Expectations at Gallaudet University developed by the Language and Communication Workgroup.
The recommendations were presented to various constituencies, including the President's Cabinet, the Academic Affairs Management Team, and University Council, Faculty Senate, Academic Council. The President asked that the Provost take the lead in addressing the Workgroup's recommendations and determine the next steps for a final policy recommendation to the Cabinet for its consideration and final action by the President.
We have created and posted a signed video of the recommendations, along with a blog. The video can be found in Blackboard under Language and Communication. If you are not a Blackboard user, you can still view the recommendations and post your comments at https://gallaudet.campuspack.net/Groups/Lang_Comm/Course_Blog.

Deputy to the President and Associate Provost for Diversity and Inclusion
