Beyond Compliance: Towards a More Inclusive and Accessible Climate for Graduate Students with Disabilities
Monday, November 7, 9:00 am to 10:30 am EST
The purpose of this workshop is to help participants distinguish between graduate student academic-based and employment-based accommodations, deepen their knowledge of disabilities and disability culture, and familiarize themselves with the new online academic accommodations request process and the Rackham employment-based accommodation process. Participants will also examine the intersections and differences between disabilities, mental health, and neurodiversity, learn evidence-based practices for improving climate and culture for graduate students with disabilities, and explore methods to go “beyond compliance,” such as incorporating universal design concepts.
This workshop is designed for University of Michigan master’s students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact email@example.com to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
