In this session, we will explore the intersections of disability, ableism, and other areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion work. We will explore how we as practitioners can employ strategies to create a more accessible campus experience with more emphasis on access and equity. This session will present history, timelines, and how we as contemporary practitioners can better uplift the current needs of our campus populations through disability justice.
