Academic Ableism

#NCLUDE small learning group

10:00 am–11:00 am
Abby Mitchell & Grace Troupe,
To what extent is academia designed for temporarily abled people? How can we make universities more inclusive spaces for those with disabilities? This group will explore the ableist tendencies within universities and identify strategies to change those tendencies within our sphere of influence. We will read the book, Academic Ableism: Disability and Higher Education by Jay Dolmage which provides a history and critique of approaches to disability in higher education and strategies for critically evaluating our own institutional practices. E-book is available through UNL libraries, and Audibook is available for free through Audible. Open to everyone.

This group meets multiple times over the semester. Register at
