Wheelchair Race Changes the Viewpoint for Students, Faculty
We've all seen the "elevator out of service" emails. What most of us don't realize when we read those emails is that someone unwillingly doesn’t get the opportunity to attend class that day.
The Association of Social Work Students organized the Wheelchair Challenge to raise awareness and funds; $1,610 was raised to support accessibility improvements on campus.
Eighteen able-bodied students and professors learned first-hand how difficult maneuvering in a wheelchair is. They gained this outlook by participating in a series of campus challenges, while remaining in a wheelchair.
"Our ultimate goal was for others to gain perspective of being in a wheelchair and what difficulties students encounter," says Shantelle Rockman, a UCM student and member of ASWS who helped coordinate the challenge.
The University of Central Missouri meets all of the American Disability Act’s Standards for Accessible Design. These standards ensure individuals are able to access public facilities. Still, students learned what a big challenge minor bumps and detours can be.
"My biggest challenge was getting in and out of all of the doors because not all of the doors had the handicap buttons and some of them didn't work well," says Kelly Jameson, a freshman Actuarial Science major.
Students and professors gained a new perspective and experienced learning to a greater degree by putting themselves in someone else's shoes.
