ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Healthcare)
I am pleased to announce and encourage faculty, staff and students to participate in the Disability Awareness Month events during the month of October. The purpose of these activities is to increase the awareness of, and sensitivity to the abilities and needs of people with disabilities at UCSD. Details and a complete schedule of events can be viewed at: http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/disabilityawarenessmonth
In recognition of this annual event, I am approving one hour of administrative leave with pay that employees may apply to their attendance at a Disability Awareness activity. Supervisors are encouraged to allow employees one hour of administrative leave with pay to attend a Disability Awareness event when the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties.
Inquiries regarding the events may be directed to the Human Resources Department Employee Rehabilitation Program at (858)534-6744.
