‘Disabilities’ is topic for Inclusive Excellence series program Thursday
Lynn Niemi, UW-Green Bay coordinator for disability services, will lead a panel discussion from 2 to 3 p.m. Thursday (Nov. 20) in the Union’s Christie Theatre for the next installment in the Inclusive Excellence and Equity Certificate Series of programs. The topic is “Disabilities.” Niemi says that approximately 20 percent of U.S adults can be classified as having a disability. A guest panel of students, employees and experts in disability issues will answer questions regarding their experiences and how to request disability-related accommodations. There will also be a brief overview of disability law as it relates to the University.
