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.
Students who are just getting started with Disability Services will need to attend an information session.
Featured Event - Spring Transition Information Night
This spring each of our campuses will host an information night for transitioning high school students and their families. We will have a Disability Services counselor as well as an adaptive technology contact and a panel of current PCC students to provide an overview and answer any questions.
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 online accommodation system
Teaching and Learning Center Sessions 2013-2014
We will be offering sessions at each campus on a variety of topics through the year. Note that we will have a Collaborate session open for faculty or staff who want to participate from their desk. The time for each event is 4pm.
EMAIL email@example.com to sign up for Technology Sessions!
These sessions explore a variety of tools and Techniques that are available for use through PCC. This session may be required for students borrowing equipment from Disability Services, but is also open to staff and faculty and the general student population who are interested in how these technologies work.
