Affiliated Faculty Seminar Series
Affiliated Faculty Seminar Series:
Supporting Students with IDD Through the Education Experience
About the seminar series:
Each presentation will cover the impact on the IDD population as it relates to their educational experience. World-renowned Texas A&M University faculty members will be sharing their research, knowledge, and experiences related to the topic of that month. This series is an interactive 1.5-hour seminar designed to increase knowledge and awareness for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) among faculty, staff, students, and community members at Texas A&M University and beyond. The seminar is meant to promote strong dialogue about issues and information surrounding supporting students with IDD through the education experience. In doing so, the CDD Affiliated Faculty Seminar Series will work to promote positive, equitable, accepting attitudes towards people with disabilities on campus, in schools, and in the community.

To give you a quick overview, the MaroonBase app offers points to TAMU students for attending events (live and virtual) and engaging on campus with lectures, fundraisers, service opportunities, etc. Points put students in monthly drawings and semester long competitions for prizes up to $2,000. Every 200 points enters their name once in the monthly drawing where three people win $500 each. Prizes are funded by a donation from a Former Student.
We will be offering 100 MaroonBase points to TAMU students (undergrad through PhD) who attend your webinar today. Students just need to download our app and “check in” during the event to receive the points.
