Supplemental Questions
  1. Please choose ONE of the below prompts to respond to as part of the William R. Casey scholarship application. Once completed and uploaded, please confirm here:
  2. Accessibility Services strives to empower students with disabilities with self-advocacy skills. As a self-advocate, you need to be able to communicate your needs with others, especially your professors. Imagine a scenario where you are asked to present a workshop to CSUEB faculty members titled "Students with Disabilities in a University Classroom." What three (3) points would you cover in your workshop? What would you hope faculty members would learn from your workshop? You may submit your response in the form of a PowerPoint presentation you would use for the workshop, a written script of your workshop presentation, a video of a mock workshop presentation by you on this topic, or another format you most prefer.
  3. One of the University's Shared Strategic Commitments is to “enhance our inclusive campus, responding to the backgrounds and interests of our diverse community and promoting their academic, professional and personal development”. Imagine you are tasked with suggesting a new and innovative program for CSUEB to increase inclusivity for ALL students, with and without disabilities. What type of program or service would enhance our inclusive campus? What would it look like, who would participate, and how would it improve inclusivity? You may submit your response in the form of a written essay, a piece of artwork depicting your proposal, a video of you presenting a proposal for this new program, or another format you most prefer.
