WELCOME TO A NATIONAL DISABILITY AWARENESS WEEK OCTOBER 2015
'It's Possible... to break barriers, to think differently, to achieve dreams, to graduate from college, to work together..."
Each October, the Office of Accessibility Services hosts its annual National Disability Awareness Week commemoration. The purpose of the event is to promote knowledge and undersatnding of issues and experiences related to persons with disabilities. Our goal is to create a culture that will prepare students to be more accpeting of people with disabilities when working in their professional fields and work with them to erase barriers.
Students and visitors with visual impairment at UCM can now have a realistic sense of the campus through the use of a Tactile 3-D Campus Map. Together, students and faculty have worked very hard to develop this new resource. The Tactile 3-D Campus Map is now available for use in the Office of Accessbility Services.
