Holiday Calendar Change

December 17, 2020


Dear campus community:

I am pleased to announce that Gallaudet University and the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center will be closed on Thursday, December 24, and will remain closed until Monday, January 4, 2021.

The addition of December 24 to winter break is to recognize and give thanks and appreciation to everyone who has been working hard to support our campus community during the fall semester, and to prepare for the upcoming spring semester. You have gone above and beyond to ensure that our students were well-served, and that we all remained safe.

We have asked our leadership to allow our teams to slow down and begin to “unplug” for the next two weeks. We know that some departments have priorities that they must meet. Nevertheless, if you are able to prioritize tasks into the new year and take time off, please plan to do so. In particular, please reschedule or cancel non-essential meetings and activities for the week of December 21.

Warmest wishes for a restful winter break. Please remain safe and healthy.


Dominic N. Lacy
Chief Operating Officer

On the anniversary of the ADA, the Gallaudet community applauded the announcement that the U.S. would sign on to the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities--and looked toward next steps.

The newly-formed Gallaudet University debate team will hold its first-ever ASL-English intercollegiate debate tonight against George Washington University. The two teams will debate the proposition “Statehood for Washington, D.C. should be granted.”

We are now one step closer to choosing the official name for the site that honors Louise B. Miller, her son, and the teachers and students of the Kendall School, Division II. The Board of Trustees have approved the final three choices and we are now turning back to YOU for your final vote!
