You’re Invited to Disability Graduation 2021!
Join SSD and campus partners for UT’s Disability Graduation! We are excited to honor our graduates with disabilities and celebrate their accomplishment of earning a degree from UT! We know students with disabilities have often faced barriers during their time at UT and Disability Graduation is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate your persistence and achievements.
Disability Graduation Virtual Ceremony
Disability Graduation will consist of a Virtual Ceremony on May 20th at 4pm (a recording will be available so you can also watch it at your convenience) via Zoom, Facebook and Instagram.
