DEI's Adaptive Educational Services and Multicultural Center joins campus resource offices for Gateway to Graduation Fall Retreat 2014

AES and the MC along with the University Writing Center, Office for Women, Center for Service and Learning and the English for Academic Purposes presented to the Gateway faculty members on September 12, 2014. Other invited office resource participants included:

  • Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)
  • Office for Veterans and Military Personnel
  • International Affairs
  • Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)
  • Math Assistance Center (MAC)
  • Academic and Career Development
  • Bepko Learning Center

  • Engineering Tutoring
  • Speaker's Lab

  • and Student Affairs

The event, titled "The Huddle" split all of the office participants into groups of "Players", "Coaches" and of course your lovable "Referees". The entire NCAA Hall of Champions was decorated in sports and football memorabilia and everyone really got into it and dressed the part as you can tell. All gateway faculty received not only helpful insight from the extensive list of presenters, but presenters gained an opportunity to meet with faculty and answer questions and build relationships that will undoubtedly greatly benefit the student body going forward.

Congratulations to Kate Thedwall and the entire Gateway to Graduation Fall Retreat planning staff on an awesome event. On behalf of AES and the MC, we look forward to being a part again next year!

Congratulations Pam King on 25 Years of Service to IUPUI!!


Recently, our Director, Pam King was recognized at the Chancellor's Employee Recognition Convocation for her 25 years of service to the institution. The transcript from the video of Pam receiving her award is listed below the photo:.

Pam King receiving recognition for 25 years of service to IUPUI

"Pam is an advocate for all students. She works tirelessly to ensure that the voice of students with disabilities is heard and that the campus is a welcoming and inclusive place. Pam serves the entire campus as a resource for information and institutional memory. Additionally, she has traveled throughout the state and around the world to consult on inclusive climates and equitable opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

A well-known fact about Pam is that she is a great cook who feeds her staff regularly. In fact, although on medical leave this summer, she brought in some of her special meatballs to a going away party for one of her fellow Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team members. Congratulations {applause}"

Congratulations indeed. Well deserved.
