    Session Description 

    Disability culture and justice revolve around radical acceptance, abolishing ableist approaches, celebrating neurodiversity, and creating accessibility in all spaces. The lived experiences of disabled individuals will be front-and-center in this discussion with AU faculty, staff, and student panelists, and they will lead conversations about intersectionality, inclusion, community, and support. What can we do to foster this on our campus? Join us to discuss how and why.

    Learning Outcomes
