Disability/Access

As a member of the academic community, I have often participated in making campus more accessible, in line with the goals of the disability rights movement. I plan to continue this work at UCSC.

My work at CU Denver focused on a site providing Disability Information for Faculty. This site introduces disability issues for academics, provides resources on inclusive teaching, and more. Please take a look!

I’ve also invited prominent scholars to campus in a Disability as Diversity series:
