Who Edits What?

An email will be sent to each primary editor identifying the sections they need to review. Please review any text for which you have responsibility.  Also, use the catalog editors spreadsheet to filter/search your name and see the portions for which you are responsible. To help identify parts that need review, links to different sections are also listed.

How to Review and Submit your Edits

Departments should submit changes directly to the University Registrar's Office in one of the formats bulleted below:

  • PREFERRED METHOD: copy and paste your catalog sections into a Word document and make your changes using highlighting, red font, and strikeouts to show changes/updates so we can see what changes have been made. Obviously, we need to have highlights because it's impractical to have to compare two sections to find changes.  (sample below)  Edits can be missed if we can't track the changes, or
  • email to kai.gagnon@gallaudet.edu a list of detailed changes, or
  • print (Print-Friendly Page link at the top-right of the catalog webpage) your catalog pages and changes can be handwritten on the paper and sent over to the University Registrar's office via campus mail or scan and email (keep a copy of your changes for your own review).
Need More Help Understanding How to Edit?  Questions?

Feel free to correct the list or the catalog information by emailing Kai.Gagnon@gallaudet.edu and let us know if you have any questions.
