Tammy Day, Program Director of Next Steps at Vanderbilt, has been invited to serve on the national advisory board for the 2012 State of the Art Conference for Post-Secondary Education and Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities.
The Conference, coordinated by the Helen A. Kellar Institute for Human disAbilities at George Mason University, provides an opportunity for colleges and universities, researchers, program staff, parents, and self-advocates to discuss the current state of policies, research, and practice in the field of postsecondary education of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Conference goals are to provide a better understanding of existing postsecondary education programs for students with intellectual disabilities and to facilitate recommendations for future research. The findings are intended to help shape federal efforts to improve access to postsecondary education as envisioned by Congress and made law as the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008.
As an advisory board member, Day will have input on topics, strands, and suggestions for speakers for the Conference. She also will assist in proposal review.
