Disabling the Stereotypes

The Life Stories: Wider Worlds seminar is part of a trailblazing new project, the Disability Studies Initiative. The program attacks the stigma associated with people with disabilities and helps students explore an issue that is complex and often misunderstood. The initiative also educates students about disability-related careers in design, medicine, human services, and other professions.
