Addressing safety concerns for students with disabilities in emergency situations at UNLV

Saturday, December 16, 2023

The recent shooting at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas has prompted concerns among students, especially those with physical impairments, about their safety during emergencies. Natalie Matarazzo, a junior at UNLV, shared her experience, stating, "I had nothing. I had no idea what to do in that situation. I've never been in any situation like this, and I can only imagine what it was like for other people with disabilities."
