Institute facilitates meetings for Governor's Council's strategic plan

October 16, 2015

The Indiana University Public Policy Institute is collaborating with the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities to facilitate town hall meetings on disability issues throughout the state. Feedback from the public meetings will guide the Council's five-year strategic plan. Attendees will be assigned to tables for discussions on seven issues that concern people with disabilities and their families -- leadership, health care, education, employment, transportation, community support for children and adults, and legal justice/rights.

The five-year plan will guide the work of the Council, including its training and dissemination activities, the events it sponsors, and the projects it funds.

The Institute facilitated a total of six meetings held at three locations.
