Educational Equity, Inclusion, and Accommodations

  • 3:00 PM – 3:55 PM
  • SYKES ROOM 252

This paper examines educational equity, inclusion, accommodations and matters of opportunities and fairness in higher education. It includes the rationale for educational equity, inclusion, and accommodations in higher education focusing on the intersectionality of personal conditions of students; fairness, opportunity and intersectionality; and the exploration of shared learning environments as opposed to the concepts or exclusion and inclusion.
