Professional projects facilitated by partnerships with regional, state and national industry organizations are a great way to expand your skill set and improve your teaching aptitude.The Center on Disabilities and Human Development
(CDHD) within the College of Education is just one example of an active group that is managing important research-based projects on campus. The CDHD is one of a 67-member university network of centers serving individuals with disabilities and their families. One of the CDHD’s primary goals is to train and educate the next generation of leaders in disability-related issues, creating meaningful change that advances positive policies for all individuals. One of their recent projects led by College of Education faculty Matt Wappett is the expansion of the Moscow Community Garden. By teaming up with the Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute (PCEI) the new garden, named Hope Community Garden, will provide raised garden beds and compact gravel pathways designed specifically for wheelchairs, individuals with disabilities and other community members who need an accessible plot for gardening.
