Ability Awareness Day 2017
The Ability Awareness Day was hosted by the Dean of Students Office, Student Leadership and Services Office, HRSI and student volunteers; Leslie Ader, Rados Keravica and Zóra Molnár have greatly contributed to the success of the event. The day started with opening remarks and a presentation about Disability and Ability at CEU by Disability Services Officer Natalia Nyikes. Student presentations on Autism and the CEU accessibility project were followed by quiz activities. In the meantime, during the Ability Fair, all types of handmade products were presented, brought to us by various disability organizations from across Hungary. We are looking forward to cooperating with these organizations again.
