About the World Deaf Information Resource

This website is an initiative of Gallaudet's Office of Research Support and International Affairs (RSIA). As a first step in this evolving project, RSIA has gathered contact information for hundreds of organizations and schools in more than 150 countries. In the future, RSIA hopes to expand the website to include many more countries, as well as types of deafness-related information resources, including links to reports on the living situation of deaf people around the world, links to resources related to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and links to toolkits and training manuals oriented towards deaf people and people who work with them.

The project is the brainchild of Dr. Jay Innes, former Dean of the College of Professional Studies and Outreach, and Dr. Amy Wilson, Director of Gallaudet University's graduate program in International Development. Andrea Shettle coordinated the initial work of gathering information for this project during an internship for Gallaudet's International Development Program, and she has continued to coordinate the project since graduation.
