Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute on Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), who leads the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Dr. Christopher J. Lebron, a professor at Johns Hopkins University, both presented keynote addresses during the just-concluded Faculty Development Week. Dr. Lebron is the author of The Making of Black Lives Matter: A Brief History of An Idea. Following his address, he, Dr. Elizabeth A. Moore, ’81, G-’94, & PhD ’11, Interim Chief Diversity Officer; and Franklin Jones Jr., ’17 & G-’18, a faculty member in the American Sign Language program, conducted a dialogue.

Faculty Development Week also included sessions with Dr. Jeffrey W. Lewis, ’76, Interim Provost; Dr. Khadijat K. Rashid, ’90, Interim Dean of the Faculty, and the five school leaders; Bendita Cynthia Malakia, an attorney with Hogan Lovells; customer service, technology, and library services training; and much more. Kudos to Dr. Teresa Blankmeyer Burke, Faculty Administrator for Faculty Development, and the staff of the Office of the Provost for their work in organizing the week-long virtual program.

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!
