Throughout the year, the AdA presents educational programming and hosts events aimed at increasing awareness and encouraging the idea that a disability should not be seen as a limitation, but rather as a sign of perseverance, strength, and determination. Our programs are open to and benefit the entire Cal Poly Pomona community.
Each year, AdA selects 2 diversity champions who have demonstrated a commitment to increasing disability awareness and to promoting access and equity for individuals with disabilities throughout the Cal Poly Pomona campus community.
Disability Awareness Programming
Each year AdA offers a disability awareness program consisting of several events. To view previous year’s programs, visit the archive section of our web site.
We are in the process of planning the disability awareness program for the 2018 – 2019 year and welcome suggestions and partnerships with other groups. AdA is honored to be the host affinity group for Unity Luncheon 2019 to be held February 28th.
Ability Ally Program
All members of the campus community are invited to participate in the Ability ally Training to increase understanding of and demystify beliefs about people with disabilities.
Once the training has been completed, you are invited to become an Ability Ally to promote disability awareness, support persons with disabilities, and maintain resources for working and interacting with people with disabilities.
AdA Scholarship Program
Financial scholarships are awarded to Cal Poly Pomona students who have taken an active role in promoting disability awareness and serving as an advocate for people with disabilities.
