Institute on Community Integration featured on the Discovery Channel

A profile of the college's Institute on Community Integration aired on the Discovery Channel on Monday, June 27, 2011. It provides a brief overview of the positive societal changes in attitudes toward, and life options for, people with disabilities in recent decades, and how the work of the institute supports those changes. Included are interview excerpts with institute director David R. Johnson; Martha Thurlow, director of the institute's National Center on Educational Outcomes; and the institute's founder and current University President Bob Bruininks.

The profile is part of a television program called "The Profiles Series," which is hosted by Lou Gossett Jr., and focuses on stories about people and organizations that are making a positive impact in the world. See the series website for more information.
