In the big picture, I believe Gallaudet is struggling right now with its image as the cultural Deaf Mecca where everyone signs pure ASL and attends Deaf Power rallies and the encroaching reality of a deaf world that is changing; more students coming from mainstreamed backgrounds with weaker signing skills, oral backgrounds, and avid users of amplification technology. There is a deep ideological clash between these two camps and it results in a very fractured social scene; over there are the hearing kids, here are the oral hard-of-hearing, there are the late signers, over there are the mainstreamed ASL-users, there are those who sign SEE, those have Deaf parents...and so on.
