    Wednesday, March 13, 2019

    The Spring Reading Group discusses weekly readings related to the Disability and Change Symposium theme. This year's theme is Dis-Enfranchised in Higher Education. The conversation is not an ADA implementation conversation but rather discusses identity, advocacy, and cultural equity at the University.

    Temple graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni are invited to attend (must have a temple.edu email address). It is possible to attend individual weekly readings without attending the whole series. For more information, contact Kate.Fialkowski@temple.edu.
