Participants will receive an overview of BMAC services and engage in conversations about disability, diversity, and how we can support this intersectionality while fostering an equitable campus community.
Ability Ally 2023 will be held in a Hybrid (HyFlex) Modality. In-person attendance is limited; please only RSVP for one session on the day which you plan to attend.
· Use the linked registration form to RSVP
Registrants will be automatically enrolled in our Canvas resource course and be given the opportunity to explore some pre-event materials.
This course has three main objectives:
· Increase participant understanding of diversity and intersectionality in relation to disability
· Increase participant awareness of inclusive practices and available resources for support
· Increase participant knowledge of how to create inclusive experiences for students with disabilities on campus
BMAC encourages participants to explore the Canvas content we have prepared before the event to get a jump start on some of the topics we will be discussing as a group.
