Learning Center Experience
Collazo is one of the many faces of public service graduates featured in Kaplan
University’s Public Service videos who answered his calling and
became part of the social network of good. The social network of good is comprised of people who
have taken action to help influence the lives of people or their communities in
a positive way.
Phillip is a
passionate advocate for helping children with disabilities, and has dedicated
his life to creating a better world for them.
For nearly 15
years, he worked as a special education teacher in elementary schools. (His undergraduate degree is in early childhood
education.) Phillip turned to Kaplan University
to earn his master’s degree in higher education.
His goal was to teach teachers how to better serve their special needs
“I love teaching children, but I felt I could make more of an
impact on their lives if I helped educate their teachers. I could reach a much bigger audience than
just one classroom,” Phillip said. “But
I needed to figure out how to challenge adults the same way that I challenge
decided to go back to school, Phillip spent many hours thoroughly researching
his options. “I was open to a
traditional school but
the local university
would have taken longer, cost more money,

was earning his master’s degree, Phillip was inspired to cofound Project AWWOL:
A World Without Labels (http://www.projectawwol.org). The non-profit’s goal is to reduce the
barriers people with disabilities face through education. "The
labels that describe us don’t have to define us,” Phillip likes to say. "We should label jars—not people!” At Project AWWOL, Philip coordinates,
develops, and facilitates workshops for teachers and children’s services
providers. He also teaches inclusive art and yoga classes.
In his new
position, Phillip continues to be inspired by his Kaplan University professors. Phillip teaches his own teachers online, and
he often finds himself recalling—and emulating—the techniques his own
instructors used in his online learning.
that I felt I was really in a physical classroom during my time at Kaplan
University,” Phillip said. “It was so
interactive. I got to know my fellow students
and our professors. We were all so
engaged and excited, I couldn’t wait to log on and learn!”
As a result
of earning his master’s degree, Project AWWOL was able to compete for a grant
from the Department of
Defense, which they
won. “The grant has really expanded my business,” Phillip said.
As a result, he now provides technical assistance and training to
various schools on national and international armed forces bases. He recently traveled to Japan to work on two
military bases to implement the program.

They also taught me how to put together a learning program for adults.
I was familiar with teaching children, but Kaplan University gave
me the tools to successfully reach this different audience.”
