Students filed into class on a rainy November morning, trying their best to keep their posters dry from the downpours outside. It is the end of the semester, and for students taking ‘SES 200: People with Disabilities in American Society’, it is final project presentation day. Taught by assistant professor Dr. Bree Jimenez and Ph.D. student Tammy Barron, both from the Specialized Education Services department of the UNCG School of Education, SES 200 is a general education class offered each semester to students of all majors with the goals of providing a background on how people with disabilities have been treated throughout American history, as well as an understanding of current laws, regulations, and services offered to individuals with disabilities and the environmental and social challenges they face every day. But Dr. Jimenez wanted to do more than just educate her students – she wanted to inspire her students to become advocates for individuals with a disability, to their friends, their families, and to their community. ‘I wanted this course to create awareness, to get students to look at different perspectives and educate them on the history and background of disabilities in order to encourage the idea of being a part of social change’.
