Administrative History

Arrival was an informational and social organization whose mission was to establish a connecting link between the University and disabled students with the eventual goal of providing all disabled students with a degree from Eastern Michigan University. The organization also wished to make the University and its community aware of the disabled students and their special needs in order to create a positive change with the ultimate goal of making disabled students aware of the services that are available to them. Arrival served students of all ages, primarily those who were physically disabled. It also helped to inform anyone seeking information or advice on how to work with disabled people (from the Arrival Office of Campus Life records, Box 1, Folder 2).
