Project Shift: “What Should Be Done” To “What Can Be Done”

Time: 12:30 pm to 1:30 am

Contact: ODS Staff · ods@loyno.edu · 504-865-2990

Location: St. Charles Room, 1st Floor, Danna Center

Panel discussion led by Dr. Sybol Cook Anderson, Chief Diversity Officer, Ri Voelker, ODS Director, Samantha Pollard and Dario Bayardo, ODS Special Needs Counselors.

With an almost singular focus on legal compliance, disability service offices typically lead their institutions to consider “what must be done” rather than “what can be done.” This emphasis may keep the disability services office, and by turn the campus, stuck in a compliance narrative that promotes a response based on an obligation rather than one based on the values of equity and inclusion. Learn how Loyola’s ODS is in a process of analyzing current practices through a lens of social justice informed by disability studies scholarship as an alternative to basing their work on legal compliance.
