Student Life

SpeakABLE flyer (info in text)

This TED-style event allows students, faculty, and staff to share their personal experiences with disabilities and raise awareness of accessibility, mental health, and other differences in an inclusive, supportive, educational environment. Organized by disabled students and students with disabilities from the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Student Advisory Board, this annual event is a great way for individuals to share their experiences with members of the campus and Ann Arbor community. Come join us for a couple of minutes or a couple of hours!

WHEN: Thursday, March 21st from 6:00-8:30 pm.

WHERE: Hatcher Graduate Library, Gallery Room

Food (Zingerman's) will be provided! Register with Sessions!

Present @ event: ASL interpreters and CART Services. Working on live-streaming the event through our Facebook event page (find us at SpeakABLE 2019).  

We ask that attendees do not wear perfume, cologne or strong scents as others can be sensitive to said fragrances - out main wish is to create an inclusive environment! Also if during the event, you need to get up, move around the room or leave for whatever reason, you are more than encouraged to do so. There will be various furniture set-ups throughout the room to hopefully accommodate everyone’s needs.
