October is Disability Awareness Month

It’s been 25 years since the Americans with Disabilities Act has passed. This month Highline celebrates moving beyond inclusion by creating a future where all doors are open to equal opportunity, full participation, and integration.

All month long Highline will be hosting events on campus around disability and inclusion and how our campus–as a community–can move beyond inclusion to meaningful participation, contribution, and membership.
