NDC’s 2023 College Equity Virtual Conference provides an opportunity for disability services and other college professionals to learn best practices, acquire new knowledge and resources, and connect with colleagues in the field on providing accessible, equitable, and inclusive college experiences for deaf students.

This year’s theme is “College Equity Conference: Strengthening Access, Inclusion, and Belonging for Deaf Students.

This conference aims to help you:

  • List educational risks factors for deaf students due to systemic barriers within the college.
  • Identify gaps within your systems that impact deaf students.
  • Recognize barriers in current policies or procedures and implement change.
  • Assess the campus’ readiness to support deaf students accessing a holistic college experience.
  • Describe evidence-based practices that support equitable experiences for deaf students.
