Genesee Community College's student newspaper-The New Courier-will unveil its first ever editions in audio and Braille formats in a brief ceremony on Thursday, March 27. The ceremony will take place at 12:30 p.m. in the Forum of Genesee's Batavia Campus, and is open to the public. All future editions of The New Courier will be available to the public in audio and Braille formats, at no charge, from the circulation desk of Genesee's Alfred C. O'Connell Library at the Batavia Campus.
"Making The New Courier available to our students, staff, and the public, in both audio and Braille formats, is truly a milestone for the student newspaper and for the college," said Kristine Dassinger, an Instructor of English at Genesee and the faculty advisor to the student newspaper. "Many college students and staff members are working together to make this happen. The college's Disabilities Information Group (DIG) has offered the use of their Braille printer and tape recorder, and we've lined up several volunteer readers from around the college."
Genesee Community College's Disabilities Information Group provides disabilities related information and support to college students, faculty and staff.
