Why Study Disability?
It’s now UD’s #1 minor. Come discover why.
November 3, 2014, noon till 1 p.m.
UD’s Disabilities Studies minor offers undergraduates the knowledge they need to live and work among the one billion people world-wide who experience disability*. In this session, faculty, students, and staff will discuss the Disabilities Studies minor and describe its interdisciplinary structure. They’ll explain why learning about multiple perspectives on disability is important and identify efforts to reach more under-represented students. Opportunities for research, service learning, and career connections will also be highlighted.
Laura Eisenman, associate professor in UD’s School of Education and the faculty coordinator of the Disabilities Studies minor, will be joined by UD students and Center for Disabilities Studies staff for what promises to be a provocative and engaging presentation.
