Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD)

Staff in Purdue's Disability Resource Center (DRC) participate in the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD). AHEAD is a non-profit professional organization whose members are current and former disability service providers as well as others interested in disability-related issues such as licensed professionals, vocational rehabilitation counselors, higher education staff, students, and advocates.

There is also a state affiliate, Indiana AHEAD, which fosters professional development opportunities. This group also facilitates communication among disability service providers and others interested in disability-related issues in order to support the implementation of services to students with disabilities at Indiana universities and colleges.

The goals of Indiana AHEAD are to:

  • share information and resources through a network of postsecondary institutions and organizations
  • facilitate communication among college disability service providers in Indiana
  • provide members with opportunities for professional development
  • monitor current legislation affecting disability issues
  • promote equal access for students with disabilities in higher education
  • distribute information generated by AHEAD
