ABILITY Event Conference
St. Cloud State University
This conference is a one-of-its-kind, interdisciplinary collaboration, designed to break down negative stereotypes and to build bridges with people who have disabilities. Each of the presenters is a person with a disability and presents from the holistic, biopsychosocial model that views disability from a person-centered and social context. There will be a variety of experiential learning scenarios highlighting the abilities of people with disabilities. These presenters design a unique interactive experience that guides participants in cross cultural hands-on learning. The goal of the conference is to raise awareness for people with disabilities on our campus, to reduce negative stereotypes in our community and to increase participation in our workplaces.
