Inclusive Event Guide

It is important for individuals and groups planning events to consider how they can make their events accessible and engaging to a broad audience. The Inclusive Event Guide provides helpful tips to creating events that are universally designed—accessible to everyone!


Deconstructing Autism Awareness

A panel of Autistic S.U. students will have a discussion.  Prof. Christine Ashby, Director of the Institute for Communication and Inclusion (ICI), will moderate the panel.
Together, we’ll tackle what’s meant by “autism awareness,” how that differs from “acceptance,” and how we can move toward the latter.
