Disability RITES: American Disability Culture and
Its Impact on U.S. Higher Education


The last three decades have witnessed the evolution of a modern. U.S. disability rights movement and the development of a related, burgeoning, distinctive American disability culture. This disability culture has shaped all aspects of American life, including the experience of higher education. Please join us for a rich conversation about the ways in which disability culture has transformed our notions of college diversity, of who ought to attend college, and, indeed, the very meaning of college itself.

Chris Rosa

Dr. Rosa is CUNY’s Assistant Dean for Student Affairs. He previously held several posts in the administration at Queens College. Dr. Rosa is a noted disability studies scholar and teaches in CUNY’s Masters Program in Disability Studies.
