“A Day in a Wheelchair” places able-bodied students, staff and faculty members in wheelchairs for a 12-hour period with the goal of promoting an empathetic understanding of disabled experiences in a college setting. By combining the wheelchair experience with a structured discussion of disability rights, members of the Trinity College community learn to act as ambassadors for peers, sports teams, Greek Life Organizations, ect. and help to promote a culture of understanding around disabilities from a critical human rights lens.
Last year the Clinton Global Initiative University and One Young World Summit in South African endorsed the project. The mission of our program has peaked global interest. It is important that we continue to showcase this project on the Trinity campus where it was created.
This year the “A Day in A Wheelchair” initiative is seeking to expand its influence on campus by reaching out to the college’s academic departments and asking members to consider sponsoring a wheelchair or multiple wheelchairs for the event.
President Jones, Dean Mitzel and State Representative Jason Rojas will be spending a day in a wheelchair. The project is support by the President’s Office and the Dean of Faculty office.
