Gallaudet University Press Publisher of books on Deaf history, culture and education, sign languages, interpreting, and the journals SLS and AAD. Est. 1980.

Today, Gallaudet University offers a full complement of undergraduate degree programs as well as master’s and doctoral degrees in several disciplines. On campus, it also supports two laboratory pre-college programs, the Model Secondary School for the Deaf and the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School. To extend the reach of Deaf Scholarship, the University Board of Trustees formally chartered the founding of Gallaudet University Press in 1980, charging it with the mission of publishing books and other works on all topics relating to deaf and hard of hearing people, including their culture, their native American Sign Language, and the Deaf community. During the course of over three decades, Gallaudet University Press has released more than 250 titles, thereby establishing its reputation as the preeminent publisher of scholarly books on Deaf studies, Deaf history, Deaf culture, American Sign Language, and notable deaf people. The controlled scope of GUPress operations allows the continuance of a highly focused commitment to individual titles that has contributed significantly to its twenty years of leadership in publishing on Deaf issues. Gallaudet University Press brings unmatched experience and knowledge to the marketplace for books on and for the Deaf community, its advocates, and scholars invested in the study of Deaf society.

Mission: Gallaudet University Press is a vital, self-supporting member of the Gallaudet educational and scholarly community. The mission of the Press is to disseminate knowledge about deaf and hard of hearing people, their languages, their communities, their history, and their education through print and electronic media.
