Celebrating African-Americans Who Helped Shape WSU- Part 3

In our 3rd installment in the series, Dr. Oris Carter Amos, Professor Emeritus of the College of Education and Human Services, discusses some of her groundbreaking work in the development of a certification program in the education of the severely disabled, one of the few such programs that existed in the country. The contributions of Dr. Amos helped cultivate Wright State’s culture of inclusivity of people with disabilities, and reputation as one of the top disability-friendly universities in the U.S.

All excerpts in this series are taken from the 1991 video project, Profiles of African-Americans: Their Role in Shaping Wright State University, produced by by the College of Education & Human Services and Dr. Alyce Earl-Jenkins.
