If you are interested in doing disability/accessibility advocacy work on campus, email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your ideas, or set up a time to meet with us to hear what we're working on and what roles you can play. In the future, we hope to develop a peer mentorship program, so please let us know if you're interested in working together to develop or participate in this program.
If you are doing a disability/accessibility related project for class or div work, Aaron knows about Universal Design for Learning and the accommodation process, Sasha studies disability experience and culture, and David knows about vocational rehabilitation, accommodations, and enjoys talking through the creative process. We are happy to help you project plan, talk through ideas, and answer any questions. Learn more about our staff.
We are working on developing a Disability Studies Certificate Program with the other four colleges. In the meantime, we want to collect existing avenues for students to engage in disability experience through academics.
Sasha made a Disability Rights, Studies, and Justice libguide you can look through, and here is a list of disability-related Five College courses. We haven’t taken these courses so we can’t be sure how integral disability will be to many of them, or if the frameworks are similar to our own, but we know and like some of these folks and the sources they mention. Feel free to ask us and them for more information!
If you teach or take a course relating to disability/accessibility issues, let us know and we’ll add it to the list.
