What Other Informational Resources Does International Relations Want?
What Kind of Contact Information Does International Relations Want?
Some people depend on email for most of their communication. But information from this website may be circulated in print among people without Internet access. The more contact information you can include for each school or organization, the better.
When you submit information about deaf organizations or deaf schools for this website, please include as many of the following details as you can. Please present postal mailing addresses in a format similar to what a person would need to use to address a postal envelope to the organization from another country. For all phone numbers, please include the area code and country code if you know them.
Name of school or organization
Postal Mailing address
Video phone number
Text phone number (TTY/TDD/Minicom)
SMS/Text message number
Voice phone number
It is helpful to include a short description of the primary purpose and mission of the school or organization. This description can be between one and three sentences. We may revise descriptions at our discretion for brevity, clarity, stylistic consistency, grammar, and other issues.
Please do clarify what type of organization or school you are sharing (for example, advocacy group, deaf club or society, sports organization, cultural arts organization, religious organization, deaf primary school, secondary school, vocational training program, government agency, etc.).
You can submit your information toWorld.Deaf.Info@gallaudet.edu. If you are submitting information for many organizations and schools, then please communicate with us in advance so we can discuss the best format for presenting your information.
Here are two examples of how you can present the information for your organization or school.
