Tiffany Oms transferred to Stetson with the intention of studying philosophy and going to law school. Tiffany realized early that philosophy was excellent preparation for law school.
Under the guidance of professor Melinda Hall, PhD, her senior project centered on disability, stigma and the law. A primary focus was ways in which discrimination, both outright and de facto, have negatively impacted the lives of disabled people. Additionally, Tiffany has offered insightful suggestions for strengthening legal protections for disabled people, and she has kept a keen eye on reforms.
Faculty members are impressed by her dedication and intellectual curiosity, her sense of social justice and her friendliness. In law school, Tiffany wants to represent those who face disability-related obstacles. Also, she hopes to educate the community about disability rights, as well as break down stereotypes and stigmas that act as barriers to a more equitable society.
