Announcement from Gallaudet’s SBG

Statement to Gallaudet University students, staff, and faculty from Student Body Government President Stephanie Johnston:

We would like to acknowledge that Dr. Angela McCaskill has been placed on administrative leave until further notice. We are pleased to see that action has been taken; however, we recognize how critical it is for students to be an important part of this decision making process.

Therefore, we will ensure that every student has the opportunity to be heard and supported, regardless of their opinions. We acknowledge that the community must take accountability to avoid further bias and discrimination against race, sex, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, and class. We will have multiple discussions with different communities to determine what actions the student body will like to see from the administration. If you have ideas that you would like to contribute to the discussions, please feel free to contact our organizations’ presidents.Should you seek support during this difficult time, the LGBTQA Resource Center, the Office of Diversity and Equity for Students (ODES), Peer Health Advocates (PHAs), the Coordinators of Residence Education (CREs), the Graduate Assistants (GAs), or the Mental Health Center (MHC) are available for all community members.
