Dosun will assume the presidency in January 2023, overseeing DDEL committees and the executive board and planning the organization’s programs and activities.

“I am honored by this leadership opportunity to assume critical roles in creating a more inclusive, just society,” said Ko. “Building upon solidarity and coalition with educational scholars, practitioners, and community activists, I will (utilize) my leadership effort to fulfill DDEL’s core values: diversity, inclusion, equity, and disability justice.”
