Ability Ally Project
The Ability Ally Project is now available! The Ability Ally Project is a specialized training designed to educate faculty, staff, and students on how they can be allies for disability inclusion. Participants will learn how to create environments inclusive for students with disabilities. The training includes a range of interactive activities to engage participants as well as discussions about disability-related topics including person-first language, universal design and the disability movement. Upon completion of the training, participants can choose to display an Ability Ally placard at their work space or wear a wristband identifying them as an Ability Ally.

What people are saying about the exhibit
"The Ability Exhibit brought together the concepts of awareness, education, and interesting facts in a creative and entertaining manner. Participants were able to explore and discover information at their level through an interactive safe environment. Every person left the experience having learned facts, considered their abilities and limitations from a new perspective, and with the power to have a meaningful discussion with others about the subject of disabilities and the vision of living in an inclusive environment."
