Come join the Adaptive Sports Club as we welcome the Paralympic Goalball Team on Wednesday, March 22 at 7pm in RC 141!
Goalball is a sport exclusively for athletes with visual impairments. The object of the game is to roll the ball into the opposite goal while opposing players try to block the ball with their bodies. Bells inside the balls help orient the players, indicating the direction of the on-coming ball. Therefore, while play is in progress, complete silence is required in the venue to allow the players to instantly react to the ball. Learn more about the game at https://www.paralympic.org/goalball

Join Alliance for Disability Awareness and the Disability Services office for a month of events celebrating Disability Awareness. Partnering with the Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities, this year's theme is "I'm Not Your Inspiration," which emphasizes that people with disabilities are people first. They are co-workers, classmates, and neighbors who want to be fully included in society. This year's theme reminds us all to "Be good to each other."

Ball State has a long tradition of being a welcoming and accessible campus for students with disabilities, with over 800 students using at least one service from the office of Disability Services. I ask that you please review the information below regarding policies and procedures in working with students with disabilities. Please contact me (email@example.com; 285-5293; Student Center 116) if you have any questions or would like to discuss any of these items. Also, I have recently recorded a presentation for faculty that goes into more detail about many of these issues. If you would like to view that presentation, it can be found here: A Guide for Faculty Members
