Lecture Series

We presented a series of educational lectures on disability issues in higher education. These lectures were designed to be useful for CSU faculty, instructors, and staff members. Any CSU students seeking careers in human service fields (such as education, social work, psychology, counseling, nursing, and occupational/physical therapy) were also invited to attend any of the lectures in our lecture series. All lectures lasted approximately one hour.
