WEBINAR: Honoring Social Justice Values While Maintaining Rigorous and Appropriate Decision Making (

When:  Oct 26, 2021 from 01:00:00 PM to 03:00:00 PM (ET)

AHEAD members frequently express that they have a commitment to the principles of social justice but aren’t always sure how to apply it in their work. Some may even feel that social justice goals can be at odds with current institutional processes. This panel of experienced disability resource providers will discuss issues such as: What exactly is social justice relative to our work? How can we articulate it for ourselves and effectively communicate it on our campus? How do we integrate values of social justice into institutional practices and processes? How do we promote a narrative that embraces social justice for disabled people as a win for our institution?

Panelists with experience with many types of student diversity will share the lessons they’ve learned, the personal principles they follow, and what they wish they had known earlier when balancing the complexities of institutional policies and the nuances of students’ personal situations. Plenty of time will be reserved for Q&A.
