On April 10, 2017, Andrew Solomon will deliver the 2017 Kate Welling Disability Awareness Lecture at Miami University. The Kate Welling Disability Awareness Lecture was endowed by Helen and Tom Welling in memory of their daughter, who died in a 2005 off-campus fire. Kate discovered a passion for disability issues while taking an introduction to disability studies course and was involved in campus advocacy for disability rights. She was inspired to make disability rights her life’s work.
More information about this event will be posted as it becomes available; in the meantime, please visit the Miami University website.
