Event description
USF students, faculty and staff are invited to join this interactive presentation to learn valuable tools and insights around ableism.

About this event

The USF Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity is hosting an Ableism Awareness at USF Series. The first event is an Ableism Town Hall, open to USF students, faculty and staff.

Ableism is discrimination of people with disabilities in favor of those who are able-bodied.

Patricia Owen from the Student Accessibility Services Office at the USF Tampa campus will guide an interactive presentation around the societal impacts of ableism.

Key takeaways include:

  • Learning about the history and impacts of ableism.
  • How to recognize and avert ableism.
  • What USF can do as a community to dismantle ableism.

This Town Hall will take place on September 30 at 2 p.m. via Microsoft Teams.

The next event in the Ableism Awareness at USF series is scheduled for October 27 at 3 p.m. The two-part virtual event "What I Wish My Professor Knew" will host a student panel and guided discussion for faculty. Part two of this event will be held during Spring 2022.
