The Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) is pleased to announce its 43rd international conference: Equity & Excellence: Access in Higher Education. This annual conference is the Association’s hallmark event, drawing approximately 1,300 participants from around the world for an unrivaled professional development experience.
AHEAD seeks diverse proposals that address equity of opportunity for individuals with disabilities in all aspects of higher education. While all proposals will be seriously considered, proposals that view access barriers as resulting from environmental and system design and propose systemic solutions will be favored. In partnership with DeafTEC, AHEAD is also specifically interested in proposals that address best practices in serving deaf and hard of hearing students in STEM programs. Presentations from partnered colleagues from different campuses are highly encouraged. Proposals received early in the process may be favored.
