Because OSWD believes that learning is a lifelong endeavor, we support and provide experiences and opportunities to build confidence both in and beyond the classroom. Our mission is to empower eligible students to succeed in their pursuit of higher education by striving to assure equal access and opportunities to participate in curricular and extracurricular activities.
OSWD encourages student autonomy by providing reasonable accommodations, academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and self-advocacy training. We use a student-centered interactive model in which professionals, OSWD, and students collaborate in a nondiscriminatory academic environment.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
