November 9, 2 p.m. CT
The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) invites you to join the live 1-hour presentation event, Centralized Systems That Promote #DeafSuccess at Colleges and Universities.
This presentation is designed to help higher education professionals learn more about practices that improve campus-wide access for deaf students by modeling a centralized system approach. While more than 200,000 deaf students attend colleges nationwide, many colleges and universities are often not prepared to support deaf students at all levels of the college experience. Centralized systems, policies, and procedures can benefit schools by creating practical approaches that reduce potential gaps in a student’s education, avoid legal ramifications, and support inclusion of diverse student populations. Join the NDC and the National Association of the Deaf to learn more about strategies that your school can implement to cultivate #DeafSuccess!
Who should attend: disability services professionals, college administration, ADA/504 coordinators, campus Diversity, Equity and Inclusion offices, and coordinators of access services.
- Describe federal accessibility laws impacting colleges and universities
- Compare practices of decentralized vs. centralized approaches to accessibility services
- List resources to support ongoing evaluation of campus accessibility and inclusion for deaf students
