Join us for “Embracing the Power of Neurodiversity” (in-Person and via Zoom) on Tuesday, Apr. 16, in the Center for the Arts Recital Hall (Building 1P, Room 120) from 3:00pm to 4:30pm.

A panel of professors and graduate students at CSI will share their insights about autism and neurodiversity more generally. Panelists will help attendees better understand the strengths and challenges that neurodiverse scholars can experience. Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions and to collaboratively brainstorm strategies to make universities more supportive of neurodivergent students, staff, and educators.

Refreshments will be served.   Student participants will receive a small gift in celebration of Autism Acceptance Month.
