Research Affinity Group

Welcome to the Think College Affinity Group on Research in Inclusive Higher Education

The purpose of the Affinity Group is to support members to:

  • Learn about research that is happening in the field of inclusive higher education.
  • Connect with each other and explore possible collaborations, and
  • Share tools and resources.

This Affinity Group is designed for people who are currently involved in research in inclusive higher education or those who would like to become more involved. The activities of the group will be relevant for those working directly in inclusive higher education as well as in related disciplines (e.g., transition, rehabilitation, disability services). We have a particular focus on supporting emerging scholars (master’s and doctoral candidates). At our meetings and other events, we explore current research agendas, tools, findings, needs, and challenges related to inclusive higher education.


Next meeting

Our next meeting will be held May 18, 2021 at 1pm. You may join the meeting here; meeting agenda and notes may be found here.
