Event Date: February 23rd, 2023Spring semester is upon us and that means that students will be busy in the upcoming months as they prepare for graduation and post-graduation plans. Typically spring semester brings about a variety of opportunities and a season of change for all students, especially those that are preparing to complete their studies at their institution. For disability services,preparing for student accommodations and access may require additional considerations and planning. This webinar is designed to highlight person-centered practices, tips, and suggestions for campus accessibility, study abroad programs, internships, and graduation. The strategies and resources that will be shared via this webinar are intended to build and strengthen individual and institutional capacity to serve deaf students.
