Ulster University visits CDS

Occupational therapy students and faculty from Ulster University in Northern Ireland recently visited WMU and toured the Center for Disability Services. This is the second year the UU group have visited CDS.

WMU OT Associate Professor Maureen Mickus has been leading a WMU study abroad group to Ireland and Northern Ireland for the past nine years working on a partnership developing joint coursework. All of the UU students that visited WMU are studying occupational therapy and as such, will be working with various populations with disabilities. CDS is of interest to visit in part because there is not a similar clinic at UU at which students could gain fieldwork experience. The UU students and faculty were very impressed by the services and innovation they observed at CDS.
