Kyra Davis and John Krueger are the new vice president and president, respectively, of the Graduate Student Association. The announcement of their election was made by Ryan Odland, chair of GSA’s Election Committee, on November 18 during the organization’s last Town Hall meeting of the year. A large number of attendees, among them President-Designate Alan Hurwitz, filled the Jordan Student Academic Center’s Multimedia Theater to welcome the new officers and take care of year-end business. Krueger and Davis will assume their new roles on the first day of the spring semester.

Dennis Brown prepares to demonstrate Wushu, a sport developed from traditional Chinese martial arts, during a November 19 presentation on campus entitled, “Disciplining the Mind and the Body.” Brown has taught Wushu to more than 30,000 students at his three training centers in Maryland and elsewhere. He was recently featured in the TNT television network special, “A Tribute to the Masters of the Martial Arts,” produced by Wesley Snipes, and Black Belt magazine named him one of the 25 Most Influential Martial Artists of the 20th Century. Brown’s presentation, which emphasized the connection of the mental and the physical, was hosted by Gallaudet’s Keeping the Promise program.

Dr. Deborah Krichbaum, chair of the Department of Family and Child Studies, and Samuel Weber, an instructor in the department, present on the Summer Assessment Institute project they completed this summer. The November 10 presentation covered their work, which included analyzing spring 2008 data related to the two previously implemented student learning outcomes (SLOs), determining if the department should implement additional SLOs, developing a phased sequence of learning opportunities in the capstone field experience, and establishing departmental benchmarks for SLOs. To learn more about the institute and the other 2009 projects, go to and click on Assessment of Student Learning, then Summer Assessment Institute.

First Lady-Designate Vicki Hurwitz is pictured at a November 17 DST 402: “Deaf Women’s Studies” course taught by Dr. Arlene B. Kelly, chair of the Department of ASL and Deaf Studies. Hurwitz is a scholar of deaf women’s studies and taught the course at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf. The students in Kelly’s class remarked to Hurwitz, who came to the class wearing a purple and gold scarf, that the colors purple, white, and gold symbolized loyalty, purity, and hope in the women’s suffrage movement of the early 20th century America. Both Vicki and Dr. Alan Hurwitz, Gallaudet’s president-designate, were on campus that week to learn more about the place that will become such a major part of their lives beginning in January.
