The Association of University Centers for Disabilities (AUCD), with the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI), School for Global Inclusion and Social Development, UMASS Boston, and AUCD’s national network of university centers are pleased to implement the ADA International Fellowship Program honoring Senators Robert Dole’s and Thomas Harkin’s work in disability rights, education, and inclusion.
This program creates opportunities for mid-level professionals from around the globe to learn from the U.S. disability experience about inclusive education and workplace culture. The program enables Fellows to translate what they learn to their local contexts with the goal of improving the quality of life and equal opportunities for children and adults in their home countries. The ADA International Fellowship Program prepares the next generation of global leaders in inclusive education for their critical roles.
