The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was a major legislative accomplishment for the United States and Senate Leader Bob Dole. To prepare for the 25th anniversary of this important legislation, the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas has been provided with financial support from GE for two funded paid internships to be awarded to students with disabilities (one Archive and one Administrative internship). The interns will gain work experience playing an active role in the day-to-day operations of the Dole Institute and will serve on the planning committee for the 25th anniversary celebration to be held in 2015.
