I wrote about Rob Kozarek two years ago, when he was just getting started with wheelchair racing at the University of Illinois.
Since then, he’s taken what he learned while studying abroad in Australia and helped create a new program at the UI, called Enabled Abroad, to help students with disabilities take advantage of opportunities to study abroad and navigate some of the logistics that able-bodied students don’t have.
Click here to read about Kozarek and the Enabled Abroad program. It’s pretty cool.
