People with disabilities have a difficult time when starting college due to the lack of accessibility doors, ramps, and awareness. Therefore, a student-based approach to minimize these challenges is necessary. During this fellowship, I visited colleges within West Virginia University and pointed out the needs of people with disabilities on campus. I would like to present my experience and encourage others to adopt similar programs to make universities more accessible.
