AccessAbility Summit 2017
The Office of Diversity and Community Engagement strives to accomplish the fulfillment of the University's commitment to embrace, enhance and celebrate diversity at all levels of the University and our community through the efforts of faculty, staff, students, the executive leadership and corporate community partnerships. The Office of Diversity and Community Engagement, in partnership with the Office of Student AccessAbility, The Office of Institutional Equity & Compliance and our corporate partner Raytheon addressed the training needs and diversity challenges of college students with disabilities transitioning to the workforce.
University faculty, staff, students, caregivers and corporate community members were invited to attend the AccessAbility Summit. This seminar addressed a number of promising approaches that are available to support students’ preparation for the workplace demands of the new global economy. To maximize the effectiveness of these approaches, special focus was put on increasing rigor, relevance and engagement as it relates to students who have traditionally faced barriers to successful workforce transitions. The University’s goal is to broaden awareness of disability employment in order to create a strong partnership between students, faculty, staff and the corporate community in the North Dallas area.
