Vahlkamp Theatre

Neurodiversity Convocation Flyer

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Centre Counseling, Centre Learning Commons and the Office of Student Success have partnered for an impactful discussion around Neurodiversity. Moving from pathologizing differences, to appreciating unique gifts and challenges neurodivergent people bring to the Centre community (and beyond). In this 90-minute discussion, guest experts – Dr. Allie L. Rhodes (Assistant Professor in the School of Education) and Dr. Victoria Slocum (Director of Academic Accessibility Resources) – will engage with a panel of Centre Faculty and Staff as they share personal pathways to success along their career and professional journey. Panelist for the evening will include: Dr. Jennifer Muzyka (Ewing T. Boles Professor of Chemistry), Amanda Pearce (Director of Student Activities & Greek Life), Dr. Katie Ann Skogsberg (Associate Professor of Behavioral Neuroscience), and Dr. David Toth (Associate Professor of Computer Science and Data Science).  Join us for a stimulating conversation around the intersectionality of neurodiversity, moving from a disability paradigm to a difference and diversity paradigm, normalizing and affirming neurodiverse-identity, and increasing awareness of neurodiversity as an important part of the DEI conversation.
