Disability And Business Education

The Anderson School of Management and the Southwest ADA Center are embarking on a collaborative project to incorporate considerations of individuals with disabilities into aspects of business education. The project focuses on developing educational materials and analytic tools designed to highlight the economic, social, and cultural benefits of access and inclusion.

Dr. Craig White, chair of the accounting department, is overseeing this initiative at the Anderson School. The Southwest ADA Center is a program of ILRU (Independent Living Research Utilization) at TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston, Texas. The Center is funded by a grant from the Department of Education's National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).
