Instead of heading to their residence halls for dinner on Wednesday night during the first week of classes, one dozen freshmen made their way to the Faculty Club to help inaugurate a new tradition of the Office of Accessible Education.

The Sept. 22 event, which was the first "welcome dinner" hosted by the office for incoming frosh with disabilities, attracted about 42 people, including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff.


The 21-member committee also includes Julie Lythcott-Haims, dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising; Ronald Albucher, director of counseling and psychological services at Vaden Health Center; Catherine Glaze, associate dean for student affairs at Stanford Law School; Michele Marincovich, director of the Center for Teaching and Learning; and Rosa Gonzalez, director of the Diversity and Access Office.
