Disability Awareness Month

Disability Awareness Month was first established by the Disability Resource Center in 2018 and is an extension of national and state recognized celebrations aimed to uplift the voices of those with disabilities as well as to expand disability awareness.

During the first two weeks of October the state of Florida recognizes Disability History and Awareness Weeks. During this time educators are encouraged to teach students about Disability issues, bring awareness to the community, and disability history. October is also National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which is a time to educate employers about disability employment issues and the contributions of employees with disabilities.

During the month of October and beyond, we encourage you to share your inclusion efforts, your specific disability knowledge and how we can work together to make our university and community an inclusive space for all.
