A 21st Century Approach to ADA Compliance: Equity and Access
For more than 30 years, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has required disability access for postsecondary education, but when only narrowly interpreted, access does not necessarily ensure inclusion. This webinar will discuss the ADA and its implications for practice in higher education. We will discuss universal design strategies to expand our concept of disability access to provide more equitable and just experiences on campus.

May 31, 2022 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
