One such project, "Handicap Awareness Week", is described in terms of definition, rationale, objective, and general considerations. Outlined are sample "Handicap Awareness Week" programs (which included holding special olympics events, organizing publicity campaigns, and raising funds to modify campuses) conducted at four universities. Discussed in the remainder of the document is a project to survey campus buildings and facilities for architectural barriers and to publish a guide relating to such areas for handicapped students. Included is information on the planning of the survey, choosing buildings to be surveyed, and editing and distributing the guide. Also provided is a sample survey report form. (SB)
