Project Description: The proposed effort seeks to address the problem of limited inclusion for the mobility impaired to participate in field experiences required in the geosciences curriculum. This underrepresented community has been previously excluded due to limiting physical conditions that are generally required for field study.
Diversity Focus: Mobility impairments
Project Publications and Disseminated Materials: forthcoming
List of Collaborators: Don Stredney, Alan Price, Karen Irving, Rick Toomey
