Expanding Accessibility

Implementing success
Collaborate with a worldwide, higher education network as it comes together to explore, engage, and learn. Each year higher education professionals face new and unique challenges in their work and AACRAO's Annual Meeting is the place to find solutions to those challenges.

 

Access to higher education is a global matter. Attend sessions related to holistic admissions and identify pathways that can lead to more inclusive admissions practices. Sessions featured in Expanding Accessibility focus on a variety of topics from:

  • diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • students with disabilities
  • international education
  • electronic transcripts
  • veteran affairs
