On Monday October 21st our faculty, staff and students have a wonderful opportunity to experience the world through another person’s challenges. As part of the Disability Awareness Month programming, we have the Challenges to Human Existence Expo from 11-2.
Take the challenge of:
maneuvering a wheelchair
pouring a glass of water without sight
completing a task while "hearing voices" you can't control
simulated breathing of someone with asthma
Challenges to Human Existence Expo
Alumni Hall, Student Center
October 21st from 11-2
Watch as a guide dog maneuvers around a hallway
In the Alumni room you will be invited to experience challenges some of your fellow students face on a daily basis. From the use of a guide dog to maneuver around the campus to hearing voices (auditory hallucinations) while trying to complete forms. Come on down and open your eyes, your ears, and your minds to the challenges to human existence.
Faculty: Students who are asking for extra credit could easily bring you an attendance note card and write up a brief paper on how this expo applies to your class.
