NOVEMBER 2022 EDITION OF INSIDE EQUAL ACCESS
A NOTE FROM THE EDITORS
PLEASE CLICK. PLEASE READ. That's all we ask. This month has incredibly powerful and valuable information: real stories of veterans, students with chronic illness, and being both LGBTQ+ and disabled. These are our people. We are ALL Kent State. This November we say to our Veterans: THANK YOU. Thank you for your service and thank you for choosing Kent State as a place to belong as a student and/or employee. We are better because of you.
NEW SUPPORT GROUP STARTING: Are you a staff or faculty member who has a disability? ABLE (Access Betters the Lives of Everyone) is an employee resource group at Kent State seeking to provide a space for community and collaboration among Kent State University’s faculty and staff who are part of the disability community. We will be having our first general meeting on Tuesday, December 20th at 11:00am at THE DI HUB as well as virtually via Teams. Enjoy a few snacks, meet new people, and take some time to discuss what you want to see from ABLE going forward. We hope to see you there! More Info available by emailing Emma Weihe, SAS Accessibility Specialist.
