What is GURC?
The goal of the Gallaudet Regional Center is to provide a regional connection to Gallaudet University, its educational programs, and its community. The center will offer extension courses, training workshops, and technical assistance to address the educational, transition, and professional development needs of deaf and hard of hearing people from birth through adulthood. In partnership with Gallaudet University, the GURCs offer courses for deaf and hard of hearing people, their families, and the professionals who work with them. Courses provide opportunities to study with recognized experts in such fields as American Sign Language Linguistics, Deaf Studies, Deaf Education, and Interpreting. These courses are provided through the GURCs, often in collaboration with sponsoring agencies serving deaf and hearing communities. Schools for deaf students, special education school districts, interpreter training programs, or professional organizations can be sponsoring agencies.
Through partnerships with host colleges, Gallaudet University Regional Centers (GURCs) help Gallaudet and the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center bring the resources and expertise of Gallaudet University to sites across the country via the provision of extension courses, training programs, workshops, conferences, enrichment programs, and technical assistance. The Office of Regional and National Outreach oversee the 5 regional centers.
