Welcome to the Disability Advocates of Grand Valley!

 

We are an organization dedicated to the support of people with disabilities and the education and understanding of different disabilities.

All meetings in the Fall 2014 semester are on Tuesday at 5 pm in Kirkhoff 2264

 

 

We have many events on campus to spread the word about disabilities and to promote understanding.  One of the biggest ones is the Disability Awareness Fair, which features many different disabilities and information about them and what life is like to have them.
