Continuing Professional Development
We have established a collaborative agreement with Gallaudet University to promote educational skill development and career advancement opportunities for deaf and hard of hearing Federal employees enrolled in the university's Masters of Public Administration (MPA) program. The partnership supports deaf and hard of hearing Federal employees' career advancement opportunities by providing valuable education and skills in a bilingual and fully accessible learning environment.
Gallaudet University's MPA program is a 40-credit graduate degree program administered by the Department of Governance and Public Affairs. It is intended for professionals with at least one year of paid employment in a public sector or non-profit organization who can communicate through ASL or who are willing to learn ASL prior to graduation.
