Dear Campus Community,
I am excited to announce the inaugural issue of Global Connection, a new publication by the Office of Research Support and International Affairs. The newsletter is dedicated to disseminating information about Gallaudet University’s programs aimed at improving the lives of deaf people around the world through education and advocacy. It highlights our outreach efforts, including partnerships we have formed with other countries, and shares the success stories of international scholars whose lives have been changed for the better through their connection with Gallaudet.
The newsletter also reports on steps the University has taken, and previews future plans, to offer and oversee international and intercultural education opportunities for Gallaudet students and faculty, as well as the global community, through enrollment and retention, research, development, and outreach.
Global Connection showcases the opportunities Gallaudet departments offer to promote research and study abroad programs related to educational pursuits, including coursework, internships, cross-cultural studies, and scholarly exchanges. It demonstrates Gallaudet’s commitment to producing graduates who understand the importance of connecting with other societies around the world and sharing their knowledge.
I hope you will find the articles in the newsletter informative, providing you with a better understanding of the range of our University’s important work with the global community.
Carol J. Erting
