The Center for Research in Autism, Intellectual and other Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (C-RAIND) is being recognized by the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives for its excellent progress toward advancing diversity within the community.
C-RAIND began as a cross-college multidisciplinary initiative in 2013 with the mission to improve the quality of life of people with neurodevelopmental disabilities and their families across the lifespan and with a passion to remove bias towards non-neurotypical individuals, and a commitment to foster inclusion.
The Center and its faculty are humbled to accept this award and feel fortunate to be part of a campus community whose world view is grounded in a commitment to inclusion and celebrates diversity.
The annual Excellence in Diversity Awards Program and Reception is scheduled for February 14, 2019, at 4:00 p.m. at the Kellogg Center, Big Ten A. The event is free and open to the public.
