by Amanda Kraus, AHEAD President

On behalf of the AHEAD board of directors and staff, I am delighted to invite you to Cleveland for our 2022 Equity & Excellence: Access in Higher Education IN-PERSON annual conference! After the last couple of years, I know that I am so happy to be together with you to recharge and attend sessions that challenge and stimulate thinking on our practice as AHEAD continues to prioritize and uplift discussions of intersectionality and social justice.

We hope you will enjoy hearing from our plenary speaker, Dr. Cheri Blauwet, who will reflect on her experiences as a practicing medical doctor and Paralympian, and who well knows the important role DR practitioners play in promoting equity for disabled students in higher education. Thank you for your support of AHEAD and for all the good work you do! We look forward to seeing you in Cleveland.
