The Subcommittee on Disabled Student Experiences (SDSE) is a student-led, student-focused sub-group of the larger Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Persons with Disabilities (CCSPD). Our focus is on identifying barriers to disabled student success on UIC’s campus and addressing them through action and advocacy.
In the past, the SDSE has…
—led accessible study sessions for disabled and chronically ill students
— hosted social events for disabled students and allies
— administered surveys to gauge student experiences on campus
—been a leader in the movement to launch UIC’s Disability Cultural Center
We’re launching our new academic year on Friday, September 14, 2018 at 12pm. Disabled students and allies, bring your lunch to the Disability Cultural Center (1st floor Daley Library) and join us! We’ll be using our button maker to hand-make buttons, talking a bit about the history of this group, and making a plan for the upcoming year!
If you’re interested in being a part of this group, but can’t make the event, e-mail Zoie (firstname.lastname@example.org) to join the SDSE listserv!
