Disability Services Events
Engage with Disability Services
There are a variety of opportunities throughout the year in which Disability Services connects with students, staff, and faculty across the district. We offer resources, training, and support.
Upcoming Community Events
- How's Your News - free film screening at PSU on May 28th and May 30 at 7pm through the Portland Center for Public Humanities
- DisRepresentation: Reading into Disability - free event at PCC Cascade campus on May 30 from 6-8pm
AIM Labs for Students
Disability Services is working with students individually to ensure they know how to use the new accommodation management system. Any student who does not wish to leverage the online interface is still able to accomplish all the same tasks by coming in to meet with a counselor. For students who wish to use the system, but want extra practice and support, we have group lab sessions, drop in hours, or individual appointments. Contact us to get help.
AIM Information for faculty
Disability Services is happy to attend department or division meetings, or to work individually faculty. Please also see our page devoted to helping faculty acclimate to the new system
