Special Ed Speaker Series - Desperate and Disparate Experiences of People of Color

Starts: 7:15 pm on Wednesday, April 17, 2013
Location: SED 250

Health, educational, employment and quality of life outcomes for people of color indicate significant disparities within American society. The differences are exacerbated by disability, particularly Intellectual and Developmental Disability. We’ll explore risk factors, the role of culture in the confluence of ethnicity and disability, and opportunities to reduce disparities.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students at the School of Education benefit from the community feel of a small school along with the resources of a large university. Our students are in the field in both urban and suburban schools as early as their first year at SED.

Graduate Students

Talented graduate students from around the world prepare to become teachers, counselors, administrators, and more in as little as one year at the School of Education. Our students engage in diverse aspects of education both in the classroom and the field.
