This afternoon, author and civil rights activist Judy Heumann will meet with our community from 2-3 p.m. for a free virtual event and discussion. Heumann is a nationally recognized advocate for the rights of people with disabilities, subject of an Oscar-nominated documentary and author of a recently published memoir.

Co-hosted by more than 10 Mizzou partners — including schools and colleges, as well as student organizations — this event shows that building a welcoming campus (and world) is a responsibility we undertake together. By listening and sharing experiences from across our community, we can ensure that everyone knows they have a place at Mizzou and can receive the support they need to achieve excellence.

I hope you’ll be able to attend.
