Student Services (Student Diversity and Inclusion) are proud to present a range of workshops supporting awareness across a multitude of student support including Disability.

Effective support for students with a disability or health condition positively impacts their retention and success at Griffith. It’s also an important strategic goal and legislative imperative for the university.  Disabilities and health conditions are not always visible and 40% of people over 18 years of age have a disability or long-term health condition. Students with disabilities are an increasingly significant proportion (over 6%) of our student community and we all have a part to play in support.

The Disabilities Service runs regular Disability Awareness Training sessions through Staff Learning and Development. You can increase your knowledge and improve your understanding of inclusion for people with disabilities

July 13 – Gold Coast Campus | August 17 – Nathan Campus

This workshop is a useful face-to-face session with Disability Service Officers and includes topics such as arrangements for reasonable adjustments for students, legislative and policy contexts, and working with diversity groups in Higher Education. Topics such as how Griffith supports students and staff, reasonable adjustments; inherent requirements in the university context; myths and facts about living with a disability; and resources such as the Accessibility and Inclusion website which can guide staff.
