Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion, and Disability
Annual Conference

Welcome to the Conference Home Page of the ADA Coordinator's Office of The Ohio State University

"As social movements mature, they begin to look beyond the 'letter of the law', which emphasizes ethics and values, and promulgate systemic changes in attitudes, behaviors and institutional structures."
- Leslie Kanes Weisman

As a modern land grant university an important part of Ohio State University's mission is outreach and engagement, serving the community through a variety of activities. During the tenth anniversary year of the Americans With Disabilities Act the Multiple Perspectives On Access, Inclusion And Disability conference was created to help fulfill this mission. In short, the goal of the conference is to encourage the kind of change suggested by Leslie Kanes Weisman in the opening quote.

It is hoped that the annual conference will serve as a catalyst for positive change and a springboard for collaborations with our partners in education, business, public and social service. Each year a series of workshops will provide a forum for individuals and organizations to expand their knowledge and perspectives, and an opportunity to increase community resources through the synergy of collaboration.

The workshops are designed to bring a diverse audience together to discuss the full spectrum of disability issues and experiences. To ensure broad participation from the university community, business, state and local government, educators, advocacy organizations, social service agencies, and individuals with disabilities sponsors are sought each year to subsidize conference participants.

Registration is now open for the April 13 - 14, 2015, 15th Annual Multiple Perspectives Conference. Please visit the conference agenda page to register.

This year the Ken Campbell Memorial Lecture on Disability Policy, "The Stories We Tell: The Americans with Disabilities Act After 25 Years" will be presented by Professor Lennard Davis on Monday, April 13, 2015. This event is free & open to the public.
