Diversity Includes Disabilities

The DeafTEC Resource Center is partnering with AHEAD to provide a unique professional development opportunity for faculty and disability services personnel on fostering equitable higher education experiences for students with disabilities. This professional development will allow participants to develop a network of colleagues with whom they can share ideas, and discuss issues and experiences in STEM programming for students who are deaf or hard of hearing as well as those students with other disabilities.

Support for Community College Teams
  • Teams from up to 20 community colleges will be selected to participate in the conference
  • Each team will consist of a STEM faculty member and a staff/faculty from disability services
