Event Date and Time: Thurs., Oct. 6, 6-8 p.m.
Event Location: Case Lounge (Room 701), Jerome Green Hall, Columbia Law School
A panel of students, faculty, and staff will discuss the ways the university has both accommodated and excluded people with disabilities. What are some of the surprising and innovative ways Columbia has sought to include people with disabilities into its community? Conversely, how has it managed to maintain ADA compliance, while creating an unwelcoming environment? Columbia’s campus will serve as a starting place for a broader discussion about disability, access, and higher education.
