Enlarging freedom for 25 years

| Katherine Schneider

Our faculty and academic staff are distinguished scholars, researchers and award-winners — experts in their respective fields. Whether it's asking new questions, spotting big trends, providing perspective on global issues, or innovating and testing new concepts, our faculty are making a difference in and out of the classroom. Their insights, theories and solutions are impacting the world, the nation and our local communities.

Dr. Katherine Schneider, UW-Eau Claire senior psychologist emerita, recently wrote a "Think Piece" titled "Enlarging Freedom for 25 Years" that was published in the July 22, 2015, issue of Volume One magazine. Within the piece, Schneider reflects on how the Americans with Disabilities Act has vastly enhanced her life since its inception 25 years ago. Schneider, who is blind, describes how ADA-influenced advancements have increased the convenience and joy in her daily life, from improved website accessibility to machines that enable her to vote independently.
