At this time we are super excited to share that the Southeast Regional Association on Higher Education and Disabilities (AHEAD) Conference, themed The Social Justice League, May 18-19, is a GO!
In the Spirit of the SOCIAL "Justice League," this two-day conference connects social justice, differing abilities, and higher education in a manner reminiscent of our youthful essence, when some of us read comics (many of us still do!). Join us for intriguing breakout sessions, entertaining and mind-bending guest speakers, and intense round-table discussions. Vendors will be on hand to exhibit the latest and greatest advances and social movements in accessibility/disability services. Network with colleagues in the field and learn from the experts.
This is an inexpensive and invaluable conference for postsecondary access coordinators, disability service providers, transition coordinators, and those with the insatiable superhero desire to ensure equity of access for all college students!
**The deadline for the Call for Proposals has been extended to March 22, 2017, for review and advisement by March 27. This extension will broaden the scope of presentations offered and the new deadline will still allow attendees to choose either the “presenter rate” or the “early bird rate.”**
NEWS FLASH! 10 contact hours = 1 CEU available! $15 to process; include “I want the CEU!” ticket option when using the Eventbrite link, or add $15 to your total when sending a P.O. or check.
