Director Forum

Meet, share with, and learn from other Directors of Disability Services & Access departments

Our next event: 7th October, 1pm ET

What is Director Forum?

Director Forum is a private, supportive community for Directors in similar situations to learn from and help each other face the tricky issues involved in running a Disability Services department.

We gather at a monthly event where we meet, network, and problem solve together. The majority of the 1-hour meeting is spent in small groups, discussing a big challenge.

Think of it as a support group - people who you’ll be able to trust, learn from, and meet with regularly to seek creative approaches to your problems.

Our next event

Thursday 7th October, 1pm ET

We’ll be discussing the status of UDL on your campus, and how you can advocate for UDL on behalf of students. What UDL gains were made during the pandemic? Have they been maintained as we start to move back to more in-person pedagogy? Who are your UDL allies on campus, and how might you work together to improve universal design across campus?

Bring your challenge to the meeting and discuss it with your peers. We’ll gather in small groups to brainstorm creative approaches to problems, share experiences and victories, and encourage each other as we dive into the new academic year.

Director Forum is hosted by Glean

Director Forum is hosted by Glean, the note taking solution that is the antidote to information overload. There is no charge to join Director Forum, nor do you have to be a Glean customer. Here’s why:


We work with Directors of Disability Services departments every day. We know it’s a tough, complicated job. The pressures you face are very specific to your role - none of your colleagues fully understand your challenges, and nor do we.

But your peers do. Director Forum is all about gathering Directors to discuss the challenges you’re facing, and to connect you with people who can help you to overcome them.

We at Glean want to support you. We can’t advise on all your problems, but we can help you to connect. This is a non-promotional event - we won’t be talking about Glean, we’re just here to help facilitate your learning.
