Disability Recognition Month (DRM) celebrations took place across the university from 16 November to 16 December 2022. The theme for this year’s celebration was ‘Disability, Health and Wellbeing’.
We received fantastic attendance at our central event ‘What’s new in the Disability Space?’, showcasing initiatives and the provision of service for disabled staff and students, allies, managers and anyone who wanted to know more about the support available at UoN.

This webinar features Professor Cate Denial, Bright Distinguished Professor of American History at Knox College, University of Nottingham alumna, and PI on a $150,000 Mellon Foundation grant analysing practices of care in academia during Covid. Professor Denial will discuss the need to practice a “pedagogy of kindness” to create a more inclusive and just academy.
Drawing on her research and own experiences with disability, Professor Denial will prompt us to re-evaluate our ideas of educational “rigour” not only in response to the pandemic as a mass-disabling event, but also a part of larger efforts to make higher education more accessible for disabled students and instructors alike.
This talk focused on how workplaces can become more inclusive to all members of the community.Leading disability charity, Disability Rights UK delivered the talk, which included:
