Volunteers needed to assist the university

Volunteers needed!

Gallaudet University is in immediate need of volunteers in the following areas:

  • writing 
  • graphic/web design
  • web development
  • videography
  • project management
  • facilities support 

All these tasks can be performed remotely. 

More broadly and longer-term, Gallaudet seeks staff, faculty, and alumni to volunteer for annual events and unforeseen circumstances. Help us enhance the Gallaudet experience for our students, and to support them in an inclusive and positive way that ensures an engaging, uplifting, and positive experience for everyone. Departments and offices are welcome to volunteer, as well.

University-wide volunteer activities will be posted regularly. Requests for assistance will include: 

Annual events: Welcoming students and their families to events such as the start of the academic year each fall, Homecoming, Commencement,  etc. Duties include providing information on-campus resources and ways for students to get involved in campus life, helping to establish a lifetime love for the University and its unique culture, and conveying an awareness of expectations and responsibilities that lead to a comfortable and successful experience.

Unforeseen circumstances: Providing support for students in times of crisis to ensure their health, safety, and well-being, with the goal of reducing stress and reassuring students that Gallaudet is there to support them. Some duties may have physical demands (e.g., removing snow from sidewalks and steps, cleaning buildings and grounds, or landscaping). Other tasks include communication support (e.g., writing, videotaping, or web design), and project management. 

Interested? Send an email message to, and state your areas of interest and expertise. Thank you!
