Shared Governance

Governance bodies and committees serve a wide variety of functions at Gallaudet and vary in terms of their mission, membership, and representative term length. For example, some serve in a long-term advisory capacity while others convene for a short time to focus upon clearly identified tasks. They are typically comprised of members from the faculty, staff, and student communities, and the respective Senates — Faculty, Staff, SBG and GSA — nominate individuals to serve and forward their nominees to the appropriate individual for final selection.

Contact the Office of Academic Quality if you have updates for any of the information.
