Day of Disability & Neurodiversity

The Day of Disability & Neurodiversity, hosted in partnership with the Center for Disability and Access, recognizes the year-round importance of promoting understanding and inclusivity on campus and facilitating discussions on ways to improve access for all. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1 in 4 adults in the U.S. live with a disability, and these numbers increase among the elderly. Additionally, experts are emphasizing the need to encourage understanding around neurodiversity—and that there is no one “right” way of thinking, learning, understanding, or behaving that works for everyone.
