On Dec. 3, Auburn and The Office of Inclusion and Diversity, or OID, recognize International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which serves to promote understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. Auburn acknowledges that disabilities can be visible or invisible, and no two people’s experiences are the same.

This story chronicles Auburn’s School of Kinesiology and its exciting work assisting persons with disabilities and traumatic brain injuries to find new function and capabilities. To view Auburn’s resources for persons with disabilities of any kind, visit The Office of Accessibility website.

Auburn and OID recognize the unique experiences and challenges that accompany living with a disability and commend the efforts of the School of Kinesiology and those making similar efforts around the world to improve accessibility. For more information on Auburn's commitment to DEI and other notes of recognition, please visit the Office of Inclusion and Diversity through its website, on Instagram, the new DEI landing page or by signing up for the OID newsletter.
