Creating an Inclusive Culture for your Staff, Programs and Facilities 

NIRSA Annual Conference

Washington D.C., 2017

Summary: 

Every campus has underrepresented populations that need to be included in campus rec programming and facilities. Through an exploration of the Portland State University Campus Rec Department’s efforts—and with your hands-on participation—this presentation will teach you practical ways to establish a culture of inclusion in your department with your campus recreation staff.

Key points:

  • Creating a culture of respect among your staff, students, and patrons. 
  • Inclusive vs. Adaptive programming and equipment
  • How to make your programs and facility ADA Compliant? 
  • Going above and beyond ADA Standards. 

Everyone Plays: Applying the Dear Colleague Letter to Campus Recreation

NIRSA Regional Conference

Honolulu, HI, 2015

NIRSA Annual Conference

Kissimee, FL, 2016 

Summary: 

With the release of Dear Colleague Letter in 2013, students with disabilities must have equal opportunity in extracurricular activities including but not limited to athletics, campus recreation, after school programs, and clubs. This interactive presentation will get you thinking about alternative ways to adapt your programs to being inclusive to students with disabilities (as required by law), and how to design new programs to be compliant with the new standards the Department of Education has released. 

Key points:

  • Ensure that a student with a disability participates with students without disabilities to the maximum extent possible. 
  • Students with disabilities who cannot participate in the school's existing extracurricular athletics program- even with reasonable modifications or aids and services- should still have an equal opportunity to receive the benefits of extracurricular athletics. 
  • Schools may require a level of skill or ability for participation in a competitive program or activity. Equal opportunity does not mean that every student with a disability is guaranteed a spot on an athletic team.
