Our charge:

 
Central Michigan University is committed to a culture that values diversity and supports full access and inclusion of individuals with disabilities. We believe this contributes to a richer learning environment that prepares our students for an increasingly complex and diverse society. Under the guidance of the Office of Student Disability Services and the Accessibility and Disability Advisory Council, the university continually strives to maintain and improve access to programs and services.​
 
The Director of Disability Services, in conjunction with members of the ADAC, work with individual offices across campus and individuals to ensure effective communication with applicants, participants, members of the public and companions with disabilities are involved and have sufficient means of co​mmunication to gain equal access to participate and enjoy the benefits of a service, a program or activity of the University.

The Advisory Council is committed to providing equal and appropriate access on campus.  If you are aware of a situation, location, policy or incident that you feel inhibits access or disproportionately impacts individuals with disabilities, please let us know.   We will do our best to resolve the situation.

Special Event

Josh Blue 

​Josh Blue: The Palsy Revolution
​Friday, November 7
7:30 to 9:00 p.m.
Plachta Auditorium in Warriner Hall

Josh Blue has been a fast-rising star since first appearing on Comedy Central’s “Mind of Mencia” before gaining the attention and endearment of the country as a favorite on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”  Josh is a diverse and triumphant individual - hilarious stand-up comedian, stand-out guest star on television, talented artist, and stellar U.S. Paralympic Soccer player – refusing to bow to any of the challenges that come from living with Cerebral Palsy. Josh uses his incredible sense of humor and versatile persona to defy stereotypes and encourage others to overcome their preconceived notions about people who are considered “disabled.”  His unique brand of “reverse teasing” affords him the great joy of “humbling condescending people.” 

Admission is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Limit four tickets per person. Additional tickets (beyond the four free tickets) will have a $5.00 per ticket charge. Tickets will be available starting Tuesday, October 14th. Contact Central Michigan University Ticket​ Central to request tickets: cmich​.edu/ticketcentral or (989) 774-3045. Mature audiences only.​

Sponsored by the Accessibility and Disability Advisory Council, Program Board, and the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences. ADA Communication Access Real Time (CART) and Qualified Sign Language Interpreters will be provided at this performance. ​For more information, contact Beth Kennedy at 989-774-2725 or kenne1bm@cmich.edu​.
