Advancing Access and Equity: Celebrating Disability Awareness
Syracuse University is recognizing National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) in October, and there are several events taking place on campus and virtually. These opportunities enhance awareness of and support for our disabled community on campus in employment, education, culture and beyond.
Hosted by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Center for Disability Resources, the Center on Disability and Inclusion, the Burton Blatt Institute, and the Disability Cultural Center, these events follow the highly successful D.E.I.A. Symposium on Oct. 3.
“The events we have highlighted this month showcase the disabled experience in college and beyond, and also deliver resources to faculty and staff on how to create a truly inclusive campus,” says Christy Ashby, School of Education professor of inclusive education and director of the Center on Disability and Inclusion.
“We are fortunate to have a strong coalition of offices, centers and institutes at Syracuse working every day to bring more awareness, opportunities and resources.”
The campus community is invited to engage in all opportunities, including the following events:
