Disability Awareness Week 2014

Focus on ABILITY, rather than disability.

Did you know Texas Tech University has 1600+ individuals registered with a disability on campus? More than likely you know someone with a disability. Show your support and help de-stigmatize disability by participating in Disability Awareness Week. Next week, October 27th to the 31st, we are raising disability awareness. Please join us in wearing disability awareness ribbons and show your support for all those with disabilities. You can pick up an awareness ribbon in 335 West Hall.

Check out the schedule with all the events we will be hosting throughout the week. Everyone is welcome to attend.
