Part I: Identifying Your Purpose. We will focus on creating a purpose and mission for the office. This session will include discussion of the leadership and influence role that a disability resource office can play on campus. We will look at how philosophies such as social justice, civil rights, and legal compliance inform our work as influencers on campus. We will lead you through a critical analysis of sample purpose and mission statements, share resources for leadership development, and discuss strategies for communicating your message to the campus community.
