Gally Ties to China

Gallaudet University is starting a joint academic effort with Beijing Union University. Gallaudet President T. Alan Hurwitz attended a signing ceremony in Beijing to mark the occasion. The Chinese school's College of Special Education is leading the educational collaboration between the schools to bring Chinese students to Washington and American students to China. Gally will launch an English Language Institute at BUU with the involvement of its own faculty members. The cooperation between the universities was fostered by the Department of State’s EducationUSA initiative and the US Embassy in Beijing.
