Disability Awareness Month

Diversability Month

Welcome to the 2012 Disability Awareness Month “Diversability.”

October is Disability Awareness Month at Penn State. The theme of the month is “Diversability,” which emphasizes the varying abilities and talents of people with disabilities. The intent of the Diversability events is to promote an atmosphere where individuals are comfortable discussing and exploring questions about accessibility, equality, and inclusion for people with disabilities. Penn State looks forward to celebrating Disability Awareness Month with you! Diversability events are sponsored by Penn State’s Disability Advisory Group, a consortium of individuals from across the University working together to enhance disability initiatives at Penn State.

At World Campus, we want to become a part of this great awareness. Throughout the month the University will host a number of onsite events. We will be recording a number of the events for your viewing pleasure. For updates, please feel free to contact me, Terry Watson at tlw37@psu.edu. For a complete list of all events, please visit the Office of Disability Services website.
