Today is International Women’s day, a day to recognize the fight against gender and sex based oppression that is deeply rooted in society. The day celebrates women, past and present, that have fought for their place in the world. For women with disabilities, not only have they had to fight against the patriarchy, but also against the oppression of those with disabilities. The history of the world is marked by all shapes and sizes of women, below are only some of those with disabilities.
At MSU there is a focus on maximizing the abilities and opportunities of all students. Tyler Mazone is a deaf graduate student who joined MSU to further his music career. We had an opportunity to ask him some questions about his experience at MSU and why he chose us for his education.
October is a special month for working towards connecting the value of higher education to success in our community. We are thankful to these outside sources that worked to highlight RCPD’s efforts of maximizing ability and opportunity at MSU.
