As part of Disability Awareness Week, the Salt Lake Community College Disability Resource Center will host a student voice project on Monday, October 29 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the Student Event Center at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
The student voice project is a panel discussion that brings students with and without disabilities together to share their experiences in education and in community. Five students with disabilities ranging from vision and hearing impairment to traumatic brain injury will participate. A question and answer session will be held following introductions and questions from disability resource center staff.
“The College is putting on several student voice project events throughout the year as a way to promote dialogue and foster understanding among the SLCC community,” said Lee Stevens, SLCC Disability Resource Center Specialist. “This panel discussion features five SLCC students who have different disabilities. It is a way to provide people a better understanding of other who have disabilities and what the college experience is like for them.”
The event is free and open to the public.
