Encouraged to Attend:

  • College Students (or soon to be students) with a disability

  • Parents and Families of a college student with a disability

**The learned outcomes of this conference will produce a toolkit for faculty to use at their home institution. We are seeking volunteers who would be willing to create a documented implementation plan using this toolkit for their disabled student population. A small stipend will be provided to qualified faculty candidates. If interested, please indicate as such when registering.
