Pac Rim 2023
Call for Sponsors

The Center on Disability Studies at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, the host of the conference, has a long-standing commitment to promoting diverse abilities across the lifespan through interdisciplinary training, research, and service. Pac Rim is one of our many efforts towards this.

Our theme for this year’s conference is Coming Together and Moving Forward! Your assistance will help move forward opportunities for:  

  • Scholarships for students and people with disabilities who may otherwise not be able to attend the conference;
  • Sponsoring American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters or other language interpreters for conference speakers and sessions to help make sure the conference is accessible to as many people as possible; and
  • Sponsor a broad array of conference topic areas to help make sure as many communities are served as possible.

Please access our Sponsorship Packet below to learn more about the various levels of sponsorship and the associated benefits!
