Community Projects allows students to interact and team up with individuals from Wood Lane. Wood Lane is an organization that provides services for individuals with developmental disabilities. The course allows students to develop their communication skills, as well as their photography skills while also building a special relationship with the person they are photographing. The work has been displayed in the Toledo Museum of Art and shows the friendships and connections made between the partners and their surroundings.

1990 saw the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the ADA. Twenty-eight years later, Ohio, among other states continues to face challenges raised by the ADA. With our work, we are listening to individuals who live and work as we all do.
