A group of individuals has come together to explore the possibility of revitalizing an important and wonderfully informative set of activities that honor Deaf and Disability issues.  This effort was previously known as Deaf and Disability Awareness Month during ten consecutive Octobers from approximately 1997 to 2007.

Meetings will be held from October through the end of the semester to discuss this project. If you have ideas for events, activities,  presenters, topics,organizational/design/marketing or funding efforts, etc., please contact [log in to unmask] for meeting dates/times/locations.


Attached you will find nomination forms for the Standing Committee onDisabilities scholarship for registration for the conference, which is for Graduate students and new professionals. You also will find attached a
nomination form for the Standing Committee's awards honoring people who are celebrating and advancing Adaptability and the disability community in higher education. All nominations are due at 12:00am CST December 1st.

Please send your nominations to me at [log in to unmask]. If you have any questions either e-mail or call me at 214-768-4412.
