This event is designed to inspire campus dialogue on topics such as race, gender identity, religion, age, veterans, disability, and social justice in the research enterprise. This event will be both in-person and virtual. Lunch and refreshments will be provided to in-person attendees. If you register for the virtual option, someone from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation will be in touch with Zoom information the week of the event.
This session's theme will focus on the following questions:
- What is a disability?
- What does it mean to live with a disability?
- How can we understand and improve lives through research & innovation?
