Adaptive Sports in Higher Education: What are we missing?

Jeff Townsend, a Clemson University Parks, Recreation & Tourism Management Lecturer and Adaptive Sports Player, presents how CU’s Adaptive Sports and Recreation Lab is quickly emerging as a national leader in adopting and promoting adaptive sports in higher education. As a disability advocate and adaptive sport athlete/coach, he will focus on some of the many disability sports and recreation initiatives that CU offers as well as the vision for the future of CU’s Adaptive Sports and Recreation as part of a holistic approach to higher education for students who may have a disability.
