Toward an Anti-Abelist Academy: Advancing Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility at UM

10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

A virtual colloquial series of events throughout Disability Community Month, Toward an Anti-Abelist Academy invites the campus community to learn more about creating a welcoming University climate that actively works toward embracing disability culture and experiences.  Ableism is defined as discrimination and social prejudice against people with disabilities and/or people who are perceived to be disabled.
