Disability and Diversity

Jen Brooks ’15 sits in a yoga-like pose on a blue gymnastics mat on the floor of her bedroom in Lazier Hall. She faces a wide-screen Mac on a table about 4 inches off the floor. Flowers and 21st birthday cards decorate the nearby windowsill.

Using a joystick and a separate switch that works like a mouse button, Brooks opens a reading assignment for a sociology class. A male computer voice reads quickly — Brooks could slow it down, but she likes it fast. As the voice reads, the text is highlighted in yellow on the screen.

Journal Club

Journal Club meets the first Friday of each month to discuss an article selected by members of the SEPC. We meet in the 1515 psych commons area, shortly after noon (about 12:15) until just before 1:00. Students are encouraged to read the article prior to attending. 

Pizza and other snacks are provided. Sign up in your classes! Please help us conserve resources—only sign up for pizza if you are sure you can attend. Any questions, please contact kelty[at]grinnell[dot]edu.
