Supporting Graduate Students: Understanding Graduate Milestones and Accommodations

Author: Richard GUBASH

Rick Gubash is the Director of the Disability Resource Center at UC Santa Cruz, has worked in the Disability Field for nearly 30 years, and has presented at AHEAD conferences three times on the topic of Graduate Students with Disabilities. He has taught 4 semesters of college-level classes and presents on Universal Design and Inclusive Pedagogy topics on his campus. The co-presenter, Dr. Ben Miller, is a PhD with experience advising graduate students in multiple domains of higher education. Very few presentations at AHEAD cover graduate students. We also seek to add at least one co-presenter to add to the diversity of perspectives in our presentation.
