The Disability Resource Center kicked off Disability Awareness Month with a Tell Your Story Listening Booth powered by Storycorp and the Disability Visibility Project.

Students, faculty, and staff passing through Building 6 were encouraged to stop and take a few moments to listen to personal stories of individuals with disabilities.

Students were also encouraged to write or draw their responses to what they heard.

“It’s a great reminder to see the humanity in other people,” stated one participant.

DRC has a wide variety of events throughout October including a Transferring Accommodations to the 4 Year on Oct. 19th and a Monday Movie on disability and the arts on Oct. 23rd.

DRC will be providing tickets for a drawing to all individuals who attend Disability Awareness Month events. The drawing will take place at the final event on Nov. 9, Going Beyond Inspirational.
