The annual event celebrating National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) took place on October 1 at the Newman Library. University ADA Services and University Libraries joined forces to bring The Ability Exhibit to campus.
Allies for Inclusion: The Ability Exhibit is a specialized training designed to educate faculty, staff, and students on how they can be allies for disability inclusion.
The exhibit was created by Saint Louis University graduate students in the Disability in Higher Education and Society course. Evolving from a class project into a sophisticated exhibit, Allies for Inclusion: The Ability Exhibit debuted at SLU on October 27, 2010. Since its debut, The Ability Exhibit has been displayed at other colleges and universities, and it received national recognition at the 2011 ACPA College Student Educators International annual convention.
