A rectangular image showing the College Autism Summit 2022 logo. On the left are three overlapping triangles, all arranged in a line so that they look like peaks of a mountain. The left and right triangles are almost the same size, with the middle triangle much taller and overlapping the right triangle more than the left, so that it is offset. The outlines of the triangles are blue, with no color within them. There is also an orange line drawn along the bottom off all the triangles, and the infinity symbol appears in the intersection of the middle and right triangle. The middle triangle is the tallest and also has an orange line accompanying its left hand side. Text to the right-and side of the triangles reads 'College Autism' in navy blue on the top line and 'Summit 2022' on the bottom line, were summit is in navy blue and 2022 is orange. Underneath this text is the date and location of the event, in grey, reading 'October 12-14 / Nashville, TN'.

The Frist Center for Autism and Innovation is pleased to announce that this year’s College Autism Summit will be hosted at Vanderbilt University from 12th – 14th October.

The College Autism Summit is organized by the College Autism Network, a collection of researchers, colleges, self-advocates, and other stakeholders engaged in evidence-guided efforts to improve access, experiences, and outcomes for postsecondary students with autism.

The College Autism Summit will return to an in-person meeting with over 30 general sessions this year. It will also feature a pre-conference workshop where participants will learn how to build, expand, or improve their college program for students with autism.

The theme for this year is ‘Practice Makes Better: The Shared Work of Neurodiversity.’ Participants will learn about emerging research, share perspectives, and walk away with a practical toolkit to improve existing programs or start their own!

Registration information, prices, and the current summit schedule can be found here. Register before September 15 to access reduced registration fees.
