This year’s theme Access by Design: Building Together for a Better Tomorrow focuses on the importance of collaboration in deliberately designing access for all students to post-secondary education. As the African proverb goes,”If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Through thoughtful partnerships between universities and colleges’ programs, services and faculty, community organizations and agencies, businesses, government, and individuals, together we can use proactive collaboration and building relationships as a framework for promoting access and inclusion. We hope this year’s conference will inspire workshops on innovative practices, tools and strategies that facilitate conversations among providers and users alike, about how we can bring about effective partnerships to build a better tomorrow.
