  • Change and conversations are happening all over campus.We want to engage in conversation and share with the university the work that many people have been doing, what still needs to be done, and the efforts underway to increase the visibility of the needs of people with disabilities at OSU as well as the role of difference, equity and inclusion. We want to explain what all of this is about. About what kind of community we want to be.
  • Shows progressShows underrepresentation stillShows a growing need for how we best serve this population, and a growing need for how we address difference generally
  • Shows progressShows underrepresentation stillShows a growing need for how we best serve this population, and a growing need for how we address difference generally
  • To achieve our aspirations, this is a nice starting point, but we need to strive to go beyond – great benefits can be had by being all inclusive
  • Growing need to rethink how we serve the population. The old model is outmoded - individualistic
  • More consistent with present day, more sophisticated understanding, disability is in some regards something we create as a society. This gives a better view of reality.

    1. 1. Universal Access: Universal Success<br />
    2. 2. Universal Access: Universal Success<br />Curb cuts in sidewalks provide universal access by benefiting all of us. Similar concepts apply to technology as well, the original concept for computers (and the company IBM) was developed by a man with a learning disability. <br />
    3. 3. Universal Access: Universal Success<br />Once someone is a member of the OSU community, how do we ensure they have an equal opportunity to succeed? How can we reframe difference, by rethinking the topic of inclusion, and move towards a university environment that works for the widest possible audience? <br />
    4. 4. Universal Access: Universal Success<br />As OSU moves toward a greater level of access across campus, please engage with us in learning about the role of Equity & Inclusion, where we’re heading, what we can all do, and how we can construct environments that strive for access and success for everyone.<br />
