ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD
I am pleased to announce and encourage faculty, staff and students to participate in the Celebration of Abilities Month events during October. The purpose of these activities is to increase the awareness of, and sensitivity to the abilities and needs of people with disabilities at UC San Diego. Details and a complete schedule of events can be viewed at:
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 Celebration of Abilities event. Supervisors are asked to allow employees one hour of administrative leave with pay to attend a Celebration of Abilities event when the absence does not infringe upon the performance of required job duties or patient care.
Inquiries regarding the events may be directed to the Human Resources Department ACCES (Accommodation Counseling and Consulting Services) Program at (858) 534-6744 or to Barry Niman at email@example.com.
