Transcript Changing Stereotypes SAB for the Physically Challenged To advise faculty and staff on issues cconcerning the disabled students." The Student Advisory Board for the Physically Challenged had a history as one of the most successful political organizations on campus. From its beginning in 1984, it has served as the active voice in affecting campus policy on issues for the disabled. Jerry Long, founder, said the board's purpose is to address issues concerning students with disabilities and to educate and express these concerns and issues to university officials, organizations and departments. One of our most important tasks is to increase awareness to the specific needs of students with disabilities. We seek to break through the old stereotypes depicting the disabled as people who stay at home, who aren't independent and who can only expect a mediocre life; who don't go to school, don't fall in love or marry and who don't work. We are beautiful people - like everyone else- with the same dreams, desires, energy, emotions, ability when given the opportunity, aspirations, and an undaunted bounty of hope for the future. It is strongly felt by the disabled students that we need to have a person with 230 •© disability working in the Center for Students with DISABILITIES, someone who will share our face-having an understanding of our needs through our shared experience. Any minority group understands this need. It is a fulfillment of our rights: to guide our own destiny. Another long term project which we are working on was presented by two board members, Ila Thomas and Joel Bowling. The Board is developing and researching this proj ect which is a plan to create an undergraduate disabled studies course. It was felt that with other minorities being represented at this University through similar courses such as African-American studies, Hispanic-American studies and study groups dealing with women's issues-that we, the dis- abled, the largest minority (43,000,000), be similarly represented. Our work will never have a conclusion so this is an open invitation to anyone interested, disabled or non-disabled, to participate with one of the most active and effective student organizations on campus. Good Luck to all the graduates and to those who are to be architects-BUILD WIDER DOORS! -Christopher "Chad"McMillan Maya Pianka and Hayley Waters try being "Blind for a Day."
