ADAPTS presents this standup comedy movie about diversity awareness followed by a discussion panel with members of our campus community.

About Disability Awareness Days:
Each year ADAPTS hosts a series of events over several days with the goal of to promoting heightened awareness, acceptance, and understanding of persons with disabilities within the Georgia Tech community. This year’s theme, "Exploring the Relativity of Normal," was selected to give the Tech community an opportunity to investigate the qualitative and quantitative constructs of ability.
