Illuminated PAC to shine light on autism awareness

April 2, 2015

Harper College will put a spotlight on autism awareness – literally – by lighting up the Performing Arts Center the night of Thursday, April 2.

The blue spotlights will illuminate the PAC from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. as Harper joins the global autism community for the annual Light It Up Blue campaign. Representatives of the College’s Access and Disability Services department, Career Skills Institute and ADS Success Club will also set up an information table in the Avanté Center to promote Autism Awareness Month.

Harper is in the process of ramping up efforts to better serve students on the autism spectrum, having seen a 300 percent increase in the population in recent years.
