Spring 2023 Professional Development Series- Disabilities and Abington
During the Spring 2023 semester, DEIB will offer a 3-part professional development series focused on dismantling ableism. The purpose of this series is to think with faculty and staff about how ableism exists across sociopolitical and cultural contexts. Participants will then use the dialogues that emerge from these conversations to consider how the PSU Abington community might deconstruct ableist norms and values to help make our campus a more accessible and welcoming place for all people. As always, DEIB honors a diversity of voice and perspective. Therefore, facilitators of these sessions will include the campus Disabilities Coordinator, faculty participating in a DEIB advisory committee focused on accessibly, students with disabilities, and community members whose interests intersect with this important topic.
