UF Disability Allyship Program: Faculty & Staff Edition Online

The purpose of this program is to enhance the experience of gators with disabilities by building a campus culture of disability inclusion beyond access and accommodations. Over the last two semesters, our Assistant Director for Outreach & Education, Beth Roland, has spearheaded the development of the DAP curriculum utilizing a disability justice framework. The vision for this program began with the intention of creating a peer-education initiative led by our student Disability Ambassadors. We quickly realized the need to expand our workshop series and provide opportunities for Faculty and Staff. As such, we have tailored our curriculum for colleagues in staff-practitioner roles as well as faculty-instructor roles. The workshop led by Gerry Altamirano and Beth Roland will provide opportunities to learn and reflect how society shapes our beliefs and ideas about disability, productivity, and independence which influences how we approach our work and engage with others.

We are limiting the workshop to 25 participants per session but hope to provide opportunities for participation in future semesters. You can expect to engage in the following topics:

  • Disability as a framework and a lived experience.
  • Perspectives on how disability ideas have shifted over time.
  • Universal Design for Learning as a tool for disability inclusion.
  • Disability as a valued aspect of diversity.
  • Social justice efforts for disability inclusion.

Hosted by the Disability Resource Center. Registration required.
