Let’s Go In: My Journey to a University Presidency is available for purchase through Gallaudet University Press. Dr. Hurwitz and his wife, Vicki T. Hurwitz, have decided to graciously donate their royalties to Gallaudet University. You may also support the T. Alan & Vicki T. Hurwitz Endowed Scholarship Fund for Students; go to giving.gallaudet.edu.

Dr. T. Alan Hurwitz ascended the ranks of academia to become the president of two universities: the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology and Gallaudet University. In Let’s Go In: My Journey to a University Presidency, available November 18, Hurwitz discusses the unique challenges he encountered as a Deaf person, and the events, people, and experiences that shaped his personal and professional life. He demonstrates the importance of building a strong foundation for progressive leadership roles in higher education, and provides insights into the decision-making and outreach required of a university president, covering topics such as community collaboration, budget management, and networking with public policy leaders. He also stresses that assessing students’ needs should be a top priority. As he reflects on a life committed to service in higher education, Hurwitz offers important lessons on the issues, challenges, and opportunities faced by deaf and hard of hearing people, and in doing so, inspires future generations of deaf people to aim for their highest goals.
