Learn more about the Gallaudet Promise with stories shared from the community

February 25, 2022


Through community conversations and a deepening understanding of the Gallaudet campus, culture, and climate, the vision for The Gallaudet Promise emerged. This is our 10 year vision toward a sustainable and vibrant experience for our University, which becomes a beacon to impact and elevate the community of deaf people of all identities, and all of humanity.

All over Gallaudet campus, people are taking action to move the Gallaudet Promise forward.  We are proud and inspired to share these stories and perspectives on how our community members incorporate imperatives (our central values) and priorities (our most important work) to make them a part of how they live and work.

These stories are shared in MyGU and will be available soon on our website. Keep an eye out for these reflections of our hard work and shared commitment to transforming Gallaudet and our future.
