UPCOMING CONFERENCE OF INTEREST

 
Join us on April 24th (8:30am-4:30pm) for a one-day conference at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, "New Measures of Equality: Civil Rights, Legal Updates, and a Spotlight on Mental Health." http://ahead.org/harvard_new_measures
 
The conference, co-sponsored by HGSE Access and Disability Services, AHEAD, and NASPA, addresses the most recent measures of equality from the courts, DOJ and the Office for Civil Rights that higher education administrators and disability services professionals need to know and apply.  Registration is $80 for AHEAD and NASPA members, $95 for non-members, and $20 for students.

In the morning, the Spotlight on Mental Health features a timely discussion of mental health practices and student experiences at Harvard and beyond. The conversation will rely on an interdisciplinary panel of students, faculty and professionals to tackle topics such as academic access for students with mental health issues, the role of campus resources in supporting these students, the self-identification process, and confidentiality-who is on a need-to-know basis when it comes to mental health.
 
In the afternoon, Paul Grossman, OCR Chief Regional Attorney, Ret., and adjunct professor of law will provide the most current legal updates on:   
 
  • Who is an individual with a disability?
  • Nondiscriminatory discipline of students with disabilities
  • How courts address the question of "qualification" for students with disabilities
  • Mental Health and Cultural challenges of Wounded Warrior
  • Conduct and students with disabilities
  • Refining academic deference

American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs

 
Tuesday April 21, 2015
4:30pm
Peter Graham Scholarly Commons
 
Film and Discussion with 
Jun Okada, SUNY Geneseo
Derek Chang, Cornell
 
Grace Lee Boggs is a 98-year-old Chinese American woman, writer, activist, and philosopher rooted for more than 70 years in the African American movement. This film plunges us into Boggs’s lifetime of vital thinking and action, traversing the major U.S. social movements of the last century; from labor to civil rights, to Black Power, feminism, the Asian American and environmental justice movements and beyond. Revolution, Boggs says, is about something deeper within the human experience – the ability to transform oneself to transform the world.
 
Co-sponsors: The Labor Studies Working Group and the Departments of African American Studies, Asian/Asian American Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies
 
A part of the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month #SU_AAPIMONTH
