Building Disability Awareness on Campus--request for information

Building Disability Awareness on Campus

Seeking information and samples of Campus Disability Awareness Campaigns

timeline is April 21-May8, 2009

Drawing attention to the services available to students with disabilities is a crucial action in ensuring that all students with disabilities know their rights and responsibilities and have access to the services they require while attending college and university.

Currently, I am developing a proposal for a disability centre awareness campaign. Many campuses have run campaigns in the past, with varying degrees of success. I am seeking information and feedback on campaigns your campus may have run. Examples of campaigns might include: poster, media, events, installations, or presentations.

Please email me if you are aware of or have been involved with a campaign on your campus. If you have websites or documents (samples) of posters or campaigns, I am interested in checking them out. I am available via email and can arrange telephone interviews if required.

Thank you for your assistance,
