The annual Spread the Word to End the R-Word Campaign will be held during the first week of March. Please volunteer to help us make this Nationwide event a success! Join us in this campaign to show your respect for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. 

What is the End the R-Word Campaign?
This is a pledge that people take each year to not use the offensive and derogatory term “retarded,” and instead replace it with a more appropriate word/phrase such as “Intellectual-Disability”. For more information about this campaign, how this word has affected people, and pledge. Visit: www.r-word.org

When is the End the R-Word Campaign?
This year our campus-wide End the R-Word Campaign will take place March 4th-6th, 2015March 4th is the official day of awareness around the country.

What is ATSU doing to be apart of the Campaign?
We will have a giant poster displayed in the main building lobby on March 4th-6th, we need volunteers to collect signatures and bring their laptops to help people pledge electronically. Our goal is to have 1 to 2 people at the table from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm on March 4th-6th asking people for their electronic pledge and signing the poster affirming their decision.

Pledge Table Volunteer Sign-Up: 

On March 4th, we are hosting a Sports Expo at the Main building lawn with Special Olympic Athletes from 12 to 1 pm. We also need volunteers for this, basically you donate an hour of your time to play sports with some pretty awesome people!

Sports Expo Sign-Up:
We are also hoping to host guest speakers March 5th and 6th, so look out for opportunities to learn more about Spread the Word to End the Word Campaign and how you can strive to encourage respect for all people including those with neurodevelopmental disorders and intellectual disabilities (ND/ID).  
If you have any questions you can email Anthony Mancuso or Celia Sommer at azaadmd@atsu.edu, we are hoping to have a good turnout and a lot of pledges to End the R-Word!

Did you know…?

 

Did you know A.T. Still University has a SafeZone for All program? SZ4A is an “ally” program designed to help all students feel they can be their authentic selves on campus without fear. Faculty, staff and students who become allies have completed basic orientation and advanced trainings aimed at increasing cultural competence, cross-cultural communication skills, and creating an accepting and welcoming campus community. When you see a SZ4A badge or certificate on someone’s person or office space, that person is letting you know that they are open to hearing or discussing anything as a normal course of their responsibilities without judgment.

To learn more about SafeZone for All, go to:http://www.atsu.edu/safezone (We’re on FaceBook too!  https://www.facebook.com/ATSUSZ4A).

 

Please see the following message from Occupational Therapy student Sean Irwin. Please respond to him directly for more information.

I am trying to see if there would be enough interest for a Mt. Bike club for ATSU.  It would be something as simple as meeting up once or twice a month to go ride a new trail.  We would be riding trails like Haws in Mesa, Desert classic, Mormon and National at South Mountain, to name a few.  We would not be  riding on canals or smooth bike paths.  Send me an E-mail and let me know if you are interested maybe we could even put an ATSU team together and do a local race. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Free dinner and learn for all ATSU students, faculty, staff, and alumni!

Panelist include:

  • George Blue Spruce, DDS, MPH
  • Gwen Werner, DMD
  • Ron West, DPT
  • Sherron Cook, PA-C
