Celebrating an inclusive campus

Center for Accessibility Services Inclusion Week

Radford University is celebrating the power of inclusion through a week-long series of events from April 1-5.

Inclusion Week kicks off with a presentation from Darren Minarik from the School of Teacher Education Leadership. His presentation focuses on “Inclusion Starts with You.” The event lasts from 11 am. to noon in the Bonnie Auditorium

Just outside the Bonnie Auditorium, people will have an opportunity to “Grow Together as One” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. People can “leave” their thoughts on inclusion and help create a permanent piece of artwork for the Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) in Russell Hall.

Join a group of Radford faculty and students living with differing disabilities who are willing to share their experiences and insight on accessibility and inclusion on April 2. Audience participation is strongly encouraged at the panel, which is from 11 a.m. to noon in Heth Hall, Lower Level, Room 022.

On April 3, learn how to be mindful from Alan Forrest from Counselor Education from 11 a.m. to noon on the Heth Lawn. Forrest will guide participants through mindfulness exercises that help refocus on the moment and acknowledge feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations.

Learn how to create accessible documents and presentations on April 4. Merrie Winfrey from the Center of Innovative Teaching and Learning and Kelly Woodward from CAS will guide participants through “Universally Designed Instruction” from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the CAS office in Russell Hall.

On April 5, Radford alumna Emily McGrail will present her story as part of Women’s History Celebration from 1 to 1:50 p.m. in Kyle Hall, Room 320. The program is sponsored by Women and Gender Studies and CAS.

All events are free and open to the Radford University community.
