Disability Cultural Centers: Embracing Disability Culture and Identity within Higher Education

Disability Cultural Centers are an innovation on the rise within higher education. This webinar will describe the role of Disability Cultural Centers on campuses, the benefits they offer students, and how they differ from the disability office that is tasked with student accommodations. The presenter will highlight recent research and share practical strategies for institutions that may not yet be in the position for a Center at this time, but are interested in building disability culture on campus. Inclusive practices on how to embrace disability culture regardless of your role on campus will guide the discussion.
