Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion & Disability Conference

Ohio State University Faculty, Staff & Students Attend Free

Join us March 20-21 for the Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion and Disability Conference. This year we will reflect on the upcoming 50th anniversary of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and how paradigms have since shifted from medical models toward social models, from accessibility standards toward universal design and from accommodation toward social justice. As we approach the 50th anniversary of Section 504, what will the next 50 years bring?


Selected Sessions:

  • Journey From an Accommodations to a Universal Design Framework
  • Belonging Beyond Compliance: Cultural Accessibility in the Digital Realm
  • Beyond Compliance: Disability and Design Justice
  • Expanding Access on Social Media
  • What’s (y)our position?: Instructor positionalities when designing accessible classroom activities

Multiple Perspectives is hosted by The Ohio State University's ADA Office in the Office of Institutional Equity and is supported by the Ethel Louise Armstrong Fund
