Gallaudet University receives subaward funding from Loyola University Maryland through grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities

The Office of Sponsored Programs wishes to congratulate Dr. Roberto Sanchez, Project Director, on his subaward in the amount of $43,769.

 Summary of the Project

“Global Histories of Disability” is a four-week NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers to be held at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. from June 18 to July 13, 2018.  The participants will be able to experience the deaf campus life and the efforts to integrate deaf people into the nearby communities and businesses at Union Market and on H Street. Included in our program is a guided tour of Deaf Space on campus, which will help the teachers to better understand some of the possibilities of accessible design, and a visit to the Gallaudet University Museum. Participants will develop a healthy respect for deaf culture and visual communication, and toward that goal the second day of the Institute will be dedicated entirely to American Deaf culture as well as some ASL orientation.
