Eunice Kennedy Shriver (1931–2009) was internationally respected and loved for her work on behalf of people with developmental disabilities, especially, the founding the Special Olympics. Members of The College of New Jersey community were among the many people who worked alongside her to help realize the vision of a world that values each individual regardless of race, class, age, gender or ability.
In January, the College hosted a celebration of Shriver’s contributions to special needs advocacy. As part of the day’s programming, this video was shown. It documents the impact that her fall 2006 visit to campus had on the students who met with her.
