The Council for Disability Concerns sponsors two main events during the year:
- The month-long Investing in Ability event, and
- The James T. Neubacher Award.
Investing in Ability Week 2014 scheduled for October. More information about the schedule of events will be available in late August.
IAW has grown to encompass a wide range of disability-related activities and awareness building events during the month of October.
The James T. Neubacher Award is presented to an individual at the U of M making a significant contribution to disability rights, and is given in honor of Jim Neubacher, an alumnus of the University who was a columnist for The Detroit Free Press and an advocate for equal rights and opportunities for people with disabilities.
