Indiana University Bloomington has announced that the Eppley Institute for Parks and Public Lands will become a seventh research center this summer. Established in 1993, the Eppley Institute partners with recreation, park, and public land organizations in order to enhance access, choice, and quality of natural, cultural, and recreational experiences for all people.

The Center for Community Living and Careers (CCLC) at the Indiana Institute is collaborating with IN*SOURCE, Indiana’s parent training and information center, to deliver Family Employment Awareness Trainings (FEAT) to Hoosier families, their young adults with disabilities, and the professionals who support them. This new training series, which begins next year, is sponsored by the AWS Foundation.
The City of Bloomington has renamed the street for the Institute effective January 1, 2020. Please note our new address is now: Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, 2810 East Discovery Parkway, Bloomington IN 47408

Malika visited as part of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) Professional Fellow Program for Inclusive Disability Employment (PFP-IDE). Since that time, Milaka has authored an article about his Indiana experience and how he has applied new knowledge in disability to his work as a Kenyan disability rights advocate promoting accommodation and inclusion in his home country.
