2021 Spring Colloquium

Starts:  May 19, 2021 11:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  May 21, 2021 5:00 PM (ET)
Three-days of virtual presentations on three topics crucial to higher education disability resource professionals.

For higher education disability resource professionals, professional development and professional colleagues are essential for ingredients for fostering accessible campuses environments. Because the pandemic has restricted both travel and budgets, AHEAD is exploring ways to connect you with both information and each other. The new Colloquium is one such opportunity.

We will be focusing on legal/policy issues on Wednesday, accessible online learning on Thursday, and DEI on Friday. Each day will feature an opening plenary on the importance of the topic and to set the stage for a series of concurrent presentations and a closing Q&A opportunity to ask the experts. Between presentations, step away from your computer for a well-deserved break or join optional discussion groups to engage with colleagues over identified topics. We are thrilled to welcome expert presenters including Eli Clare, Sheryl Burgstahler, and Paul Grossman.
