Disability Awareness Days at MSU April 5-8

During the week of April 5 - 8 there will be a series of events, Disability Awareness Days, at Montclair State University. All events are free and open to all members of the MSU community and the public.

The intention of this program is to foster understanding about people with disabilities and celebrate their diverse culture. Through this program, it is hoped that the stereotypical and prejudicial thinking about individuals with disabilities will be reduced and their full participation in campus and community life will be promoted.
