Please join us for a preview of Intelligent Lives, a documentary exploring the importance placed on IQ, and how self-advocates are challenging the notions of intelligence and pushing for a more inclusive society.

During the post-film discussion, we’ll consider how professional development and an increase in college options—including Syracuse’s “InclusiveU” program—can provide new opportunities for independence.

Hosted by Syracuse University Los Angeles and the Taishoff Center for Inclusive Higher Education.
