Creating a Positive Work Environment

The new store is the students’ training ground to learn critical job skills that can be applied directly to any empowering work setting, and is the only teaching-model of its kind in the U.S. for college-degree seeking students who are on the autism spectrum. The Ram Shop is the direct result of a partnership between the University’s Dub-C Autism Program (D-CAP) and Student Services, Inc. (SSI). 

The mission of D-CAP is to build an inclusive and accepting campus community to better support the experience and success of our degree-seeking students with ASD through indirect and direct supports.

Ram Shop Mural

The Design for Social Good class taught by Scotty Reifsnyder, Assistant Professor of Graphic and Interactive Design, designed murals for two sites on the campus. Five teams were identified as candidates, with Kayla and Taylors design being picked by d-cap students for the Ram Shop.

A word from the WCU President

"We believe that if a student is accepted to West Chester University, it is our responsibility to do whatever we can to help that student succeed.  The Ram Shop is just one example of how our access mission is being implemented. This University is truly committed to helping students achieve success and cross the finish line. Student Services, Inc. shares this goal, and we are deeply grateful that they have, once again, jumped in eagerly to provide the resources that our students need.”  

- West Chester University President Chris Fiorentino
