10 minute presentations from colleagues representing the following areas:
- In the classroom: Center for Teaching and Learning
- In the online learning environment: Office of Continuing and Distance Education
- In the co-curricular space: Center for Student Involvement and/or Residence Life
- Across campus: Flashes take care of Flashes: Great Place Initiative Student Subcommittee
Followed by a group discussion and opportunity for questions.
Disability as Diversity
A sneak peek at the Disability as Diversity training from the Great Place Initiative Ad Hoc Committee on Disability. This session provides an opportunity to challenge assumptions about disability and to learn about disability from a first-person perspective.
*Note: The 'd' in disAbility Awareness Month is intentionally lower case to emphasize people's ability, rather than disability.
