Global Accessibility Awareness Day - GAAD

 

Join CSULB on Thursday, May 2nd as we take part in the eighth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD).

Our campus is committed to providing dedicated and thoughtful assistance to all of our constituents. Students with physical, psychological, and/or learning challenges receive targeted support from the professional staff in our Bob Murphy Access Center (BMAC). The Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM) Center provides assistive technology support services for students and also furnishes training for faculty and staff. Course content builders throughout our campus are equipped with the tools and knowledge to build content with accessibility and universal design in mind.

We will host a GAAD booth by the University Bookstore on Thursday, May 2nd starting at 10am to raise awareness of accessibility resources on campus. The goal is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about what we do already and what we could do to help students even more in the future. A team associated with the CSULB Accessibility Technology Initiative (ATI) will be there to contribute information, give consultations, and provide demonstrations of assistive technologies and support channels.

We encourage you to stop by to learn more about accessibility resources and engage in the conversation of what more we can do in the future.
