Allies for Inclusion: The Ability Exhibit will be held at St. Charles Community College April 23-25.

Allies for Inclusion: The Ability Exhibit is a traveling exhibit designed to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities through respect for others, comfort during interactions and awareness of disability issues. Using a multi-media approach to demonstrate respect, comfort and awareness, this interactive and multi-station exhibit offers suggestions for becoming disability allies and educators.

Allies for Inclusion: The Ability Exhibit was created by Saint Louis University (SLU) graduate students in the Disability in Higher Education and Society course under the direction of their instructor, Karen Myers, PhD. Evolving from a class project into a sophisticated exhibit, Allies for Inclusion: The Ability Exhibit debuted at SLU on October 27, 2010.  

This free event is sponsored by St. Charles Community College’s Disability Support Services, SCC’s Diversity and Inclusion Council, SCC’s Human Resource Department and SCC’s Health and Wellness Grant.

Parking for patrons can be found in the Yellow and Purple Parking Lots, which are accessible through both the West and Southwest campus entrances.
