Our Commitment

The PI Launchpad organizers are committed to making this in-person workshop as accessible as possible, especially for people with disabilities.

We strive to make the workshop as inclusive and accessible as possible from the beginning of the planning process. The workshop will be hosted by the University of Michigan. The University of Michigan provides an overview of accessibility resources. The workshop will provide ground transportation and additional resources as needed to ensure all participants have equal access to the workshop. Any questions about accessibility may be directed to Dr. Michael Liemohn at liemohn@umich.edu. In addition, applicants are encouraged to submit accessibility requests anytime until the April 14 application deadline by emailing our Accessibility POCs, Dr. Michael Liemohn and Marti Moon, with a description of any accommodations needed to fully participate in the workshop. Early submission of your accommodation needs will allow us to incorporate any additional accommodations early in our planning stages if needed and does not require disclosure of any accessibility needs on the application itself. Once selections are made, we will make a request for any additional accommodations from all accepted participants to ensure that their needs are fully met.
