Happy Fall and National Disability Employment Awareness Month!

Welcome to Fall Quarter, and as October arrives, Welcome to National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)! NDEAM is celebrated every year, to recognize inclusion in the workplace, specifically with regard to individuals with disabilities. 

As we reflect on NDEAM’s theme this year, “America’s Recovery Powered by Inclusion,” we might think how we can be inclusive towards individuals with disabilities at Shoreline. Coming back to campus, remember that while it’s important to mask up (always!), voices may be muffled when we have that barrier. Be sure that you are speaking clearly, maybe a little louder, and that you are looking forward, directly at the person or people with whom you are speaking.

As always, if you have any questions about accommodations for students with disabilities, you may contact Student Accessibility Services (SAS), or Miranda Levy directly at mlevy@shoreline.edu or via Teams. Miranda is more than happy to speak 1:1 with staff or Faculty or to meet with departments or divisions.
