University leaders to participate in disability awareness activity
University of Alaska Fairbanks Chancellor Brian Rogers and several members of his cabinet will use a wheelchair or wear vision impairment goggles this week as part of Disability Awareness Month.
Four members of the university's executive leadership team—Rogers and vice chancellors Mike Sfraga, Pat Pitney and Pete Pinney—will participate Oct. 1-3. Access Alaska, a local nonprofit organization, will provide the wheelchairs and goggles. They will share their experiences during a public panel discussion Friday, Oct. 4 at 4 p.m. in the Wood Center Multilevel Lounge.
The activity is being organized by the UAF Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity.
