Accessibility Alliance Week
Every year Merrimack College offers its annual Accessibility Alliance Week to promote a better understanding of people with visible and invisible disabilities and demonstrate what it means to be an ally.
Tuesday, Oct. 26, through Friday, Oct. 29, 2021
- Sessions were open to the entire Merrimack College community.
- The 2021 event’s focus was on neurodiversity and the power of connection.
