DDNN Summer 2014

Members of the Historically Black College and University (HCBU) Disability Consortium from Washington, DC presented two sessions at the 2014 African American Symposium on Disabilities on examining the challenges of African American students with disabilities in postsecondary education.  Jacy Farkas, Symposium Planning Committee, met Denize Stanton-Williams, Director of the Consortium Project, at the AIDD/AUCD Minority Partnerships meeting at the 2013 AUCD Annual Conference in DC.  We were so glad they could join us for the event!
