DSU Accessibility Collective

The DSU Accessibility Collective is a student-led group that advocates with students who identify as having an accessibility need. The aim of this Collective is to create an inclusive and welcoming environment, and to advocate for the equitable treatment of students with accessibility needs on campus and in the community.

We work together to create campus change, support students, and promote disability justice. Collective members are invited to participate in social and recreational activities and events, as well as social justice programming.

The priority of the DSU Accessibility Collective is to support and be a space for students with accessibility needs, but all students are welcome to join the Collective!
