ReThink workshop: Ableism in the Classroom
Wednesday, January 19, 2011
Facilitator: Shireen Noble
The discussion in this workshop will be focused around the following questions: Is university a place designed for student with accessibility issues? What kind of barriers do students face in getting necessary accommodations to level the playing field?
The ReThink campaign was created to address these issues as they occur on our campus at the University of Guelph. The reality is that injustice, social inequality, violence, and bullying happen everywhere in the world and Guelph is not immune. Over the years, Guelph has become more and more diverse, and it is our responsibility to make sure that we are respectful of the beliefs, cultures, and experiences of all of our fellow students, peers, and workers.
