Autism Campus Inclusion

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network is now accepting applications for the 2019 Autism Campus Inclusion (ACI) Leadership Academy!  

Download the application here!  Please submit a completed application by the end of the day (midnight) on Sunday, February 24th, 2019 to Haley Outlaw at houtlaw@autisticadvocacy.org.

ACI helps Autistic students learn to make their college campuses better for people with disabilities. ACI participants learn about making student groups, understanding disability policy, and talking to people in power. During ACI, all participants go to the U.S. Capitol to talk to their Senators and Representatives about policies important to the disability community.  After the Academy, students get help from ASAN to meet their advocacy goals at their college.

Past students have learned new skills and information about:

  • Developmental Disability Policy
  • SMART Goals and Action Plans
  • Meetings and Facilitations
  • Building Your Student Group
  • Building Relationships and Campaigns Using Intersectionality
  • Strategic Relationship-Building
  • Campaign Strategies
  • ASAN Policy Goals
  • Sharing Your Story For a Political Purpose
  • Effective Debunking

ACI participants will travel to Washington D.C. from June 15th to June 22nd, 2019.  ASAN pays for travel and rooms for all ACI students.

If you need assistance or accommodations at any stage, or have any questions about ACI, please contact Haley Outlaw at houtlaw@autisticadvocacy.org.
