Come celebrate JMU’s 10th annual Disability Awareness Week with us! This year’s theme, “Beyond Opening the Doors: Accessibility in Action”, focuses on going beyond simply giving access, to creating a community where inclusion of individuals with disabilities is infused into the culture. We aim to engage members of our community in conversations about disability, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility.

A variety of events are planned to increase the awareness, knowledge, skills, and actions necessary as we strive to be an inclusive community that values the richness of all individuals and perspectives. The following events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.

Please contact us at least one week prior to the event to request disability accommodations. In all situations, a good faith effort (up until the time of the event) will be made to provide accommodations.
