The global deaf and hard of hearing community has turned to Gallaudet University as their source of bilingual information during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Our commitment to visual and signed language, and to English readily translates to our larger mission to serve deaf, hard of hearing and deaf-blind people in the U.S. and the world, who often have less access to full and accurate information, because Gallaudet has made this information widely accessible to everyone — protecting the collective safety and well-being of our community here and globally,” said Gallaudet University President Roberta Cordano.

Like other colleges across the country, Gallaudet has sent its students home to participate in remote learning via video conferencing.
