Capacity Building Institute: Computer Science and Engineering

Apr 8

Be part of the conversation as we discuss ways to increase the number of students with disabilities pursuing higher education degrees and careers in computing fields.

Landmark College, the nation’s premier college for students who learn differently, will serve as host site for its first annual Capacity Building Institute April 8 - 9 on our southern Vermont campus.

The Capacity Building Institute will bring together postsecondary faculty from the computer science and engineering fields, postsecondary disability service providers, and instructional technology personnel from around the country to discuss ways to increase the number of students with disabilities successfully pursuing higher education degrees and careers in the computing fields.

Sheryl Burgstahler and Richard Ladner will serve as inaugural keynote speakers at the event, and feature Dr. Manju Banerjee, Vice President and Director of the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training.   Drs. Burgstahler and Ladner are internationally recognized for their work as co-directors of the Alliance for Access to Computing Careers (AccessComputing) at the University of Washington, which serves to increase the participation of individuals with disabilities in computing fields. Dr. Banerjee has published and presented extensively, both nationally and internationally on topics including disability documentation, technological competencies for postsecondary transition, and Universal Design.
