Disability Resources at the University of Arizona – By Lindsey Wilhelm

For my final multimedia project, I focused on the disability resources offered by the University of Arizona.

I attended several Disability Justice Project workshops, where I observed students, faculty, and community members discussing various aspects of disability, such as oppression, history, activism, and justice.

This piece features interviews with the workshop facilitator, Zach Coble, and a workshop participant, Toni Saia.

I also focused on the DRC’s Adaptive Athletic Center, which provides accessible fitness to disabled students, faculty, and community members.

This piece also features interviews with Physical Access Coordinator Sherry Santee, Gym Monitor Kayla John, and Pete “Chief” Padilla, the quad rugby assistant coach and Adaptive Athletic Center user.

As a whole, the DRC at the UA is a valuable resource that provides community and access for disabled people.
