Civil Rights

2011

Paul seeks to end the discrimination of differently-abled students on his campus by advocating for higher levels of accessibility and awareness, thus creating an environment where people enable and empower one another despite physical differences. Paul is working to eradicate the ableism that exists in his local community and on Swarthmore’s campus by working with Swarthmore’s faculty and administration in order to create fair policies for differently-abled students. Paul hopes that through these efforts there will be a reduction of differently-abled students who withdraw, transfer, take leaves of absence, or are unjustly placed on academic probation.
