POLICIES

Department Policies
Language Use
Gallaudet University is a bi-lingual university, and with that, the language policy of the Department of Interpretation is
that ASL is to be used at all times when you are in and around the department and on campus. (Faculty, staff, and

INT 841 Syllabus Spring 2014 Cagle

students are strongly encouraged to use ASL at all times on campus.) This includes prior to and after class, and in the
classrooms, labs, hallways, elevator, department library, etc. We ask this not only because of the respect it shows but
also because of the messages sent when someone who can sign chooses not to when they are in the department and at
the University. We also ask this of you because of the impact it has on your development as an interpreter and
interpreter educator, both in terms of language and in terms of cultural understanding. For the same reasons, we also
ask that you do not sim com. (There may be times in courses when instructors require the use of spoken English, i.e.,
an interpretation.) We appreciate your mindfulness of this policy and what it represents.

University Policies
Academic Integrity
Students are expected to complete all coursework in keeping with Gallaudet Universitys policy on academic integrity.
Academic dishonesty is a very serious offense. It will be treated accordingly and will not be tolerated. If a student is
involved in unethical practices in connection with coursework or examinations, the professor has full discretion to give
a failing grade for the particular assignments, a failing graduate for the course, and/or recommend dismissal. The
policy published in the Graduate School Catalog will be adhered to. The policy can be found on-line in
http://www.gallaudet.edu/Documents/Grad/Gallaudet-Graduate-Catalog-2011-2012.pdf beginning on page 49.
Office for Students with Disabilities (OSWD) & Americans with Disabilities Act
Gallaudet University is committed to providing all students equal access to learning opportunities. The Office for
Students with Disabilities (OSWD) is the campus unit that works with students who have disabilities to provide and/or
arrange reasonable accommodations. Students registered with OSWD, who have a letter requesting accommodations,
are encouraged to contact the professor early in the semester. Ideally, this should be done by the end of the first week
of classes, but no later than the end of the fifth week of classes. Accommodations may only be provided from the time
the professor receives documentation until the end of the course. Students who have, or think they may have, a
disability (e.g. psychiatric, attention, learning, vision, physical, or systemic), are invited to contact OSWD for a
confidential discussion at (202) 651-5256 (V/TTY) or at oswd@gallaudet.edu. OSWD is located in the Student
Academic Center, room 1220. Additional information is available at the OSWD website http://OSWD@gallaudet.edu.
