My Story event

The Partner’s club whose mission is to promote disability awareness on campus and to assist with helping students with disabilities to connect with their peers on campus is hosting My Story event.  The event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 13 3:30 – 4:30 in LW 118.

“My Story” will begin with some Loudoun campus students with disabilities sharing their personal stories about the challenges and triumphs they face as students, followed by a Q & A session and then ending with some yummy pizza.

There will be a sign-in sheet so that we can notify any instructors of their students’ attendance in case you want to give extra credit to your students in a related course.

For questions, contact Sandi Nicholson, Assistant Dean, Partner’s Club Advisor, NOVA’s Loudoun campus, 703-450-2613
