Gallaudet University inaugurated a new president in late-September. Roberta Cordano is the University’s first female, deaf president, and the third since the student-led “Deaf President Now,” movement in 1988. The new president inherits the school at a time of transition: Gallaudet and the surrounding neighborhood are in the midst of a large-scale development project, and Cordano sees the potential for it to become an “ASL tourist destination.” Kojo sits down with Cordano to talk about the legacy and future of Gallaudet University.
