For more than 40 years, research at Gallaudet was coordinated by the Gallaudet Research Institute (GRI). The GRI was responsible for research supporting Gallaudet's mission to pursue projects related to improving life for deaf and hard of hearing people, as well as contributing to a better understanding of the world, in general. GRI has been internationally recognized for its important contributions and for supporting the research activities within and outside of the Gallaudet community. Research focuses have spanned areas of demographics, education, health and medicine, language development/acquisition, language planning, and much more. GRI took a pivotal role in informing the world -- government agencies, health organizations, educational institutions, and intellectually curious individuals -- about the knowledge it has contributed in numerous disciplines. Today, the Research Support component of Gallaudet's Office of Research Support and International Affairs helps perpetuate the legacy created by the GRI.
