Free Tuition and Housing at Gallaudet University?

ERM1353ArticleHeader.jpg

Why not Gallaudet University offer all DEAF students free tuition and free housing? Yes, as in spelling, F-R-E-E. After reading an article last night about University of Wisconsin-Madison “student government drafted a resolution that would grant Black students free tuition and housing that would help out centuries of racial inequities.”[Please look for the links in the references below] Because of long violent of racial terror, slavery and Jim Crow.

That makes sense. So, why not Gallaudet University offer free higher education for DEAF students? I will do my best to explain why they all should be qualified, no matter what the circumstances are. Deaf students on the campus should be bias-free and not to allow religious bigotry anywhere on the campus.

First, they experience religious terror and slavery because Deaf students are viewed as slaves to allow EPHPHATHA to terrorize their pursuit of happiness and their human rights to embrace the state of being Deaf.

As in slavery, in a Merriam-Webster definition, submission to a dominating influence–in other words, Gallaudet U. allows EPHPHATHA to be a dominating influence in hearing world. They have no business or hold the intellectual ground to own Deaf students as slaves as long as they are all cured to be hearing again. That is wrong!

Remember, EPHPHATHA means “be opened” and the objective of the goal is to eradicate the state of being Deaf. It is a dangerous game. Not only that, but Deaf students were required to show their dB tests to prove that they are Deaf–is that part of profiling, yes?

Why not make Gallaudet University as Deaf-centered? Do all hearing universities require hearing students to show their dB, too?  From Merriam-Webster dictionary on the term, profiling—it means ‘the act of suspecting or targeting a person on the basis of observed characteristics or behaviour‘ therefore, EPHPHATHA has been targeting Deaf people on the basis of observed characteristics based on their state of being Deaf for a century and half.

The goal to make Gallaudet University a Deaf-centered, Deaf-controlled, and Deaf-oriented and seek to stop language discrimination, language bigotry, and language hegemony. Gallaudet University should set a good example of offering educational philosophy that Deaf people have human rights to learn, thrive, and succeed without being oppressed by the energy of EPHPHATHA.

Gallaudet University Manual of Operations declares “EPHPHATHA: Be Opened” and it is clear an Audism market or even hate-speech market to establish rapport in order to dehumanize and confound Deaf people on the campus.

It is time for Student Body Government (SBG) and Graduate School Association (GSA) to team up before the Board of Trustees (BoT) to have the term removed from campus. If Gallaudet University refuses to remove EPHPHATHA then be sure to check out The Peter Principle to make sure Deaf students have the rights to stop the oppressive traits. New people merge into the administration. Open-minded people. All Deaf.

That is why I think Gallaudet University should give ALL DEAF students free tuition and housing until EPHPHATHA is no longer welcomed on the campus. Does that make any sense to you?

“Citizenship” at Gallaudet University

unnamed.png

After watching ‘State of the University Address’ by Gallaudet University President Roberta “Bobbi” Cordano yesterday [January 31, 2017], there are couple of issues that I would like to share my thoughts and I decided to write about “citizenship” this time. The aspect of complexity—moving our intellectual freedom out of oppressive Gallaudet University. Do we understand public relations and media, dealing with Trump administration? Especially at Gallaudet University….

What we know that we have our own identity and citizenship that is generated by social norms. Citizenship is a human condition that makes our life human, our language human, and our leisure human. Personally and professionally, students are much interested in addressing information, language, and communication than in promoting a current “full access and open communication” that needs to be seen.

What students need that the administration including the president that would realize that students are the change-makers and would change and represent a new, important form of democratic expression. The administration dominated by Gallaudet University has been known for its denial to avoid the truth.

Citizenship can empower Gallaudet University. Stories are still alive as metaphors in our lives. It can provide us with a vivid illustration of reasons why citizenship is important. At the same time, I was talking with a friend about that last night because we both watched Bobbi’s presentation and asked me what I thought of it and agreed that whether Gallaudet University lacks moral values and nothing is written in “citizenship” as of today.

Sharing some concerns whether the number of students does not understand their own sense of ownership or rights neither as an American nor in this matter, international students and returned citizens in their basic human rights to hold the highest land of citizenship.

President Cordano has declared all of Gallaudet alumni, alumnus, students, all the people on the campus, have the Gallaudet University Manual of Operations updated its definition about “Citizenship” yet?

This three-inch-thick document that is available from Vice President Paul Kelly’s office that should spell out a well-planned effort to protect all the students in “citizenship” market, and establish rapport in order to promote higher learning and support all the citizenship of Gallaudet.

Do SBG and GSA have a copy of the Gallaudet University Manual of Operations? If we want to protect our citizenship at all costs or show the Gallaudet community, knowledge is very important and regain our strength and remember your objective in this citizenship rights carefully, in line with your judgment, and study your human rights—constitutional rights and student rights.

Gallaudet University should upgrade its academic freedom that would guarantee all Gallaudet “citizens” as in citizenship including Deaf returned citizens, a beacon of higher education—it is a good time to demand change.

After all, Gallaudet University community is growing quickly into a wide-ranging of renewal of supporting “citizenship”—the administration needs to make students the best “change-makers”—if they would ever deal with the truth.

A proud Gallaudet citizen and alumnus.
