Because the DIST minor is sponsored by UD’s Center for Disabilities Studies, students in the minor are considered “trainees” by the national Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD). Trainees have access to a variety of professional resources, post-graduation employment opportunities, and information about current disability issues. Check out the AUCD trainee page. The DIST minor also has a Facebook group. We use this group to share information about disability-related scholarships, local part-time jobs, and campus activities. To join, search for us by name in Facebook (UDel Trainees) or visit their page. Under the main image, click on + Join Group. And, while visiting Facebook, please “like” the Center for Disabilities Studies Facebook page.
