For Disability Community Month 2023, the Council for Disability Concerns, Disability Culture @ U-M, LSA Faculty & Staff Disability Navigators, and Student Accessibility and Accommodation Services are partnering to bring Dustin Giannelli of HearsDustin, a profoundly Deaf motivational speaker, to campus. We aim to bring attention to Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing experiences, as well as steps our community can take to create more inclusive spaces and activities on campus.

This 1-hour hybrid speaker event will be held on October 19 from 3–4pm (doors open at 2:45pm). Live captions and ASL interpretation will be provided. The in-person venue (Weiser Hall Event Space 1010) is wheelchair accessible, including the restroom, and we will have limited assistive listening devices available for checkout. There is a live stream option for those who can not join us in person.

This event aims to:
- Highlight the disability community at U-M in a positive light,
- Amplify DEIA efforts at U-M,
- Introduce strategies and solutions for creating access for those who are Deaf/HOH, including some piloted in spaces at U-M, and
- Discuss how accessibility best practices can support everyone.

We are pleased to provide reasonable accommodations to enable your full participation in this event. Please contact to request specific accommodations or access needs, providing as much notice as possible.
