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.
