Tiger 2 Tiger
Student Accessibility Services believes that students with documented disabilities should be fully included and affirmed as valued community members throughout Clemson University. Tiger2Tiger is a Speakers Bureau consisting of currently enrolled and recently graduated Clemson University students. Students have completed training on public speaking and narrative development to engage the Clemson community in a healthy dialogue regarding disability awareness and disability services. Through personal storytelling, speakers share their experiences in an effort to promote Universal Design principles, self-knowledge, self-advocacy, and self-sufficiency to promote a greater inclusion of persons with disabilities at Clemson University.
Clemson University students and alumni share their stories in an effort to:
- Educate the Clemson community about what it means to be a student with a documented disability
- Provide basic facts and true-life experience about disabilities
- Dispel myths and stereotypes about students with disabilities
- Build understanding and acceptance through open and honest dialogue
- Provide positive disabled and allied role models
- Present information about persons with disabilities in a non-threatening, non-judgmental atmosphere
