8:00 AM - 9:30 AM AHEAD Plenary Featuring Haben Girma
Students with Disabilities are an Asset to Universities (UC 101 or Katy 3-23) Haben Girma, J.D. Do our schools recognize the tremendous value gained by investing in accessibility? People with disabilities are the largest minority group, numbering over 1.3 billion worldwide. Schools that prioritize accessibility reach a larger audience, including disabled and nondisabled community members. We know from history that difference drives innovation, but few people know about the hidden figures with disabilities who have sparked many of the technologies we use today. Schools that welcome students and faculty members with disabilities are more likely to generate exciting new ideas and solutions. Come join us for this engaging presentation on the many ways schools stand to benefit by choosing inclusion.

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM AHEAD: Assistive Tech or Disabled Student Activism Topic Choice
(Track A) Assistive Technology: An Essential Tool to Support Students in College (UC 101) Rachel Kruzel, , University of St. Thomas Learn about how accessibility topics can be integrated into your computing/IT course or how you can encourage faculty in these fields to include accessibility topics in their courses. Promising practices and resources will be shared. Efforts in these areas of application and outreach will result in a high-tech workforce that is fluent in these topics. (Track B) Cripping Campus: Disabled Student Activism and Leadership in Disability Cultural Centers in Higher Ed (UC 215 or Katy 3-23) Elizabeth (liz) Thomson, M.A., University of Illinois Chicago, et al When we understand disability in the context of social justice and ableism, a cultural experience influenced by dynamics of power and privilege, we can begin to unpack the many ways disabled people are targets of bias and microaggressions. This workshop will use research to identify stereotypes and microaggressions and explore how these ideas shape the disability experience and inform our personal and professional behaviors and attitudes.
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM AHEAD: Disability Law or Student Services Topic Choice
(Track A) Individualization, The Interactive Process and Fundamental Alteration (UC 101) Jamie Axelrod, M.S., Northern Arizona University Paul Grossman, J.D., Hastings Law School In this session, we will look at three key issues that commonly arise in OCR letters and court cases: individualization, the interactive process, and fundamental alteration determination. It turns out that focusing your office practices on these important concepts will help you make more informed and helpful decisions when working with students and faculty. (Track B) Universally Designing Student Services - What Are We Doing Right? What Can We Do Better? How? (UC 215 or Katy 3-23) Kirsten Behling, MA, Tufts University Jennifer Williams, PhD, East Carolina University UDL is not a new concept, but it may be to those who work in student services. College is about more than the classroom experience, and in our role as disability services providers, we must make sure students' entire college experience is inclusive. This session will share a new student services UDL audit tool and multi-media tips for how to add UDL into the non-academic side of the college experience.

2:30 PM - 4:00 PM AHEAD: Ableism (Microaggressions) or Online Accessibility
(Track A) Everyday Ableism - Exploring Disability Bias and Microaggressions (UC 101) Amanda Kraus, Ph.D., University of Arizona When we understand disability in a context of social justice and ableism, a cultural experience shaped by dynamics of power and privilege, we can begin to unpack the many ways disabled people are targets of bias and microaggressions. Emerging research on bias challenges us to appreciate bias as unintentional or even well-intended, behaviors and attitudes. As disability services professionals, it is important to have awareness of disability bias and the many ways bias manifests in higher education. This workshop will include discussion of research on bias and microagressions and relate it to practice. (Track B) Online Access & Accommodations: We've Been There, Done That (UC 215 or Katy 3-23) Kelly Hermann, M.S.Ed., University of Phoenix Linda Sullivan, M.A., Harvard University Sheryl Burgstahler, Ph.D., University of Washington, DO-IT Ana Quiroz Are you stumped by online courses and digital access? Do you wish that you could hear from other DS providers about what they have done to tackle this challenge? Your wish is granted. Come join members of the Online Learning SIG to hear some tried and true tales from the field from DS providers just like you.
