About the event

Join the Futures Initiative for a conversation about the meaning of mobility and the role of design as a process that can cultivate a culture of accessibility that goes beyond accommodations. Sara Hendren (Olin College of Engineering) and April Coughlin (SUNY, New Paltz) will discuss physical, structural, and attitudinal barriers within and outside of the classroom, that shape access to education for students with disabilities. The discussion will be moderated by Jessica Murray (Futures Initiative Fellow, GC Doctoral Student in Human Development). Space is limited, so please RSVP if you plan to join us.

This panel is the fourth in this year’s series The University Worth Fighting For. This series ties student-centered pedagogical practices to institutional change, race, equality, gender, and social justice.

We invite you to also join a Twitter chat on “Accessibility, Mobility, and Design” on February 8 from 3 to 4 p.m. at the hashtag #fight4edu.
