Documentary from 1990 on Memorial's Organization for the Disabled (M.O.D. II), the campus organization of students with disabilities at Memorial University in Newfoundland
A blast from the past! This fantastic documentary from 1990 is about Memorial's Organization for the Disabled (M.O.D. II), the campus organization of students with disabilities at Memorial University in Newfoundland that preceded the current group Memorial University Disability Information Support Centre (MUN DISC). The documentary on MOD II features interviews with a number of founders of MOD II and some video of Glenn Roy Blundon, who was the first President of the group. Also in the video are Pamela Densmore, a MUN graduate and member of the National Educational Association of Disabled Students' (NEADS) Board of Directors in the late 1980s/early 1990s and Corinne Gough, another MUN student who was also a NEADS board member at the time and very active in MOD II. Pam is shown at her graduation ceremony and Corinne is in a science lab, apparently the first blind student in Canada pursuing that type of science program with accommodations from Memorial and her faculty. There are also many senior Student Services staff and faculty from the university interviewed for this film.
