The Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) is hosting its
annual conference in Charlotte, NC July 17-21. The day prior to the
conference, Monday 7/16, I'll be co-facilitating an all-day Capacity
Building Institute (CBI) related to accessibility in higher education. The
CBI is free, and you don't need to attend to the full AHEAD conference to
participate (although I encourage it since you'll already be in Charlotte).
Here's the full announcement:
You are invited to participate in a national Capacity-Building Institute
(CBI) to identify barriers and develop solutions to:
* increase the number of students with disabilities successfully pursuing
undergraduate and graduate degrees and careers in computing fields.
* increase the capacity of postsecondary computing departments to fully
include students with disabilities in computing courses and programs.
The one-day CBI is free, and occurs Monday, July 16th, 2007, 9:00 am - 5:00
pm, at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina, in conjunction with
the AHEAD 2007 conference. Disability services providers, assistive and
information technology staff, faculty members, higher education
administrators, and students with disabilities are encouraged to attend.
The CBI is organized by the Alliance for Access to Computing Careers
(AccessComputing), led by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering
and DO-IT at the University of Washington. Space is limited to 50
