Disability Awareness Week

Disability_Week.jpgThe Academic Counseling Center and Educational Support Services (ACCESS) Office at Geneva College will host Disability Awareness Week from February 25–28, 2013. Members of the ACCESS staff have planned events throughout that time that are intended to spark discussion and raise awareness about disabilities.

“I think discussing the topic of disabilities is essential for every community because it is a reality people face every day,” notes Stephen Milliken, a graduate assistant (GA) in the ACCESS Office. “We hope that through this awareness, we may be equipped with understanding in order to better serve and love each other as a community.”

On Monday, February 25 at 6:30 p.m., there will be a screening of the movie The Boys Next Door in Skye Lounge of the Student Center. The film follows four mentally challenged men who share a house and are looked after by their social worker. After the screening, there will be a panel discussion to reflect on the film and begin the conversation on disabilities.

On Thursday, February 28, 2007 Geneva alumna Josie Badger will speak at 7 p.m. in Skye Lounge. Her topic is “Disabilities in the Kingdom.” Badger was Ms. Wheelchair Pennsylvania 2011 and Ms. Wheelchair America 2012. She is a youth coordinator for the PEAL (Parent Education and Advocacy Leadership) Center, a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit that helps families of children with disabilities. Her engagement is free and open to the public.

The ACCESS Office strives to promote the academic success of all Geneva students. This is done by providing open access to academic counseling and coaching, extensive peer-tutoring opportunities, and appropriate support for students with disabilities.

Geneva College invites students to accept the challenge of an academically excellent, Christ-centered education. Offering nearly 40 undergraduate majors, an Adult Degree Completion Program with fully online and campus-based options, and seven graduate degrees, Geneva has programs that place students at the forefront of higher learning. Adhering to the inerrancy of scripture, the liberal arts core curriculum fosters a breadth of knowledge through the study of humanities, social and natural sciences, and experiential learning.
