National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) Events

Join Clemson's Accessibility Commision in our celebration of NDEAM, National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

"Held each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. [...]

"NDEAM's roots go back to 1945, when Congress enacted a law declaring the first week in October each year "National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week." In 1962, the word "physically" was removed to acknowledge the employment needs and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities. In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to "National Disability Employment Awareness Month." Upon its establishment in 2001, ODEP assumed responsibility for NDEAM and has worked to expand its reach and scope ever since." - Office of Disability Employment Policy

Every year Clemson University celebrates NDEAM by providing opportunities for the community to engage with and learn from professionals with disabilities as well as other accessibility advocates.
