December 2, 2022
10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Student Alumni Union Lobby

Join Disability Services staff and student Disability Leadership Scholars in observing International Day of Persons with Disabilities on campus this Friday, December 2nd! Stop by the table for free stickers, allergy-friendly snacks, play a quick game of "mind your spoons", and learn more about disability, the Disability Services Office and accessing accommodations right here at RIT. Plus, check out the Writers and Books table, a local literary center that will be selling books written by disabled authors.
