Purpose and Mission The MCPA Disability Commission serves as a resource and seeks to educate MCPA members and student affairs professionals in Minnesota on issues involving disability. We work to ensure that MCPA addresses issues surrounding disability, encourage the involvement of disabled professionals in MCPA, and promote the involvement of professionals working in Disability and Access Services in MCPA.
Among other things, the Commission has and will fulfill this mission by:
Organizing socials and networking events.
Planning the January Inclusion Institute along with other members of the MCPA Inclusion Team.
Giving or sponsoring disability-focused presentations at MCPA conferences, drive-ins, and other events.
Maintaining a list of disability resources on the MCPA website.
Maintaining a commission blog promoting disability issues and topics.
Assisting MCPA event Planning Teams in the provision of accommodations for participants.
Maintaining a connection to outside organizations focused on disability, and partnering with those organizations where appropriate.
