Diversity Dialogue on Race and Disability
CSU Monterey Bay Health and Wellness Services, Otter Cross Cultural Center and others co-sponsored a panel called "Diversity Dialogue on Race and Disability" on April 10th, 2013. Diversity Dialogue panelists and the facilitator encouraged the audience to examine ways that race, white privilege, and racism impact work on disability issues and inclusion. Sign Language Interpreters were provided.

Parking: Parking permits are $0.50 per hour; a daily permit is $2.00. CSUMB does honor student and staff semester parking permits from Monterey Penninsula College, Hartnell College and Cabrillo College. If you have a valid DMV disabled parking placard or license plate you can park in posted disabled spaces for free -- you will not need a parking permit from CSUMB. However, if you have the placard or license plate and park in a regular space, you will need to have a permit. A yellow permit dispenser is located near the event location behind building 98. The dispenser takes both dollar bills and coins. It does not give change. MST Bus 25 also stops there.
