Panel Discussions

One of the goals of Beyond Disabilities week was to include students, professors, and community members who shared different views and experiences with disabilities to come together to discuss a variety of topics. Panel discussions were organic, audience driven, and diverse. Using an I-pad app, audience members were able to text or email their question to the panel group.

1. “Academic Support Center: Planning to Succeed-Stories from Alumni”: Alumni and students share practical tips of living and going to school with a variety of disabilities.

2. “Social Ettiquette: The How To’s”: Students with disabilities shared their college experiences and gave practical tips to students.

3. “What Makes Us Human”: One of my favorite events of the week that personally changed the way I framed disabilities.
