Graduate Student Service Learning Program – Clemson University

The opportunity: The Institute for Parks at Clemson University, the George Wright Society, and the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) announce an exciting opportunity for graduate students. Applications are being accepted for participation in a fully supported (travel, food, and lodging) Gary E. Everhardt Park Break Program focused on assessing physical and programmatic accessibility at Reconstruction Era National Historical Park (REER) in South Carolina. The objective of this program is for students to identify facility improvements necessary to meet the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) which requires that buildings and facilities that are designed, constructed, or altered with Federal funds, or leased by a Federal agency, comply with Federal standards for physical accessibility. Students will also review park programs and interpretive media to ensure they are fully accessible. The results of this effort will assist REER in improving their facilities and programs to ensure they are accessible for all. Click here for more information.
