Students will participate in self-designed internships with community-based advocacy organizations, arts programs, nonprofit settings or other social and cultural programs that provide ongoing and direct interaction with individuals with disabilities. Students are required to secure a volunteer position within an organization within the first two weeks of the course. During the semester, students will engage in written reflection and analysis of their experience. Prerequisite(s): Open to Juniors and Seniors; DIS 1010  and a B or better in a previous DIS course.
