Speaker Series – 'Reframing Disability: Implications for Teaching and Practice in Higher Education'

Monday, March 20, 2017 - 1:00pm

The Perspectives on Diversity & Inclusion Speaker Series, hosted by the College of Agricultrue and Life Sciences Diversity & Inclusiveness Committee is proud to welcome Amanda Kraus, director of Disability Resources, for our upcoming talk. 

This presentation will explore prevalent models used to frame disability and discuss how these ideas impact our professional practice. Typically, disability is understood as an individual problem, deficit or tragedy, not a sociopolitical phenomenon created and perpetuated by systemic design. Drawing from Disability Studies, we will problematize messages we receive about disability and discuss how to operationalize new thinking that will ultimately contribute to a more equitable and inclusive experience on campus.

Registration for in-person attendance is not required. Bring a friend, all are welcome! If you would like to attend virtually, please register for the series webinars here
