"Each of us is touched by disability - ours or someone else's, temporarily
or permanently, visible to others or invisible," said University of Vermont
Interim President, Edwin I. Colodny. "These changes in our abilities can
happen at any time, to any person. The impact, whether occasional,
frequent, or ongoing, becomes part of one's life."
The University of Vermont is once again hosting Deaf and Disability
Awareness Month. Now in its fifth year, Deaf & Disability Awareness Month
is a month-long series of workshops, speakers, and activities aimed at
heightening awareness and increasing knowledge of deafness and disabilities
in both the University and the broader Burlington community. We believe
that this program supports the University's commitment and policy of equal
opportunity, access, and diversity. We invite you to offer your support.
