The National Center for College Students with Disabilities and our national DREAM (Disability Rights, Education, Activism, and Mentoring) student group are pleased to announce a new Undergrad Chat modeled after our Grad Chats. Details and links are always available on the DREAM website: https://www.dreamcollegedisability.org/dream-events-and-activities.html
The UNDERGRAD CHAT is on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, starting February 7, at 3:00 Central. This is for disabled undergraduates, part-time students, and students from inclusive higher education programs. Hosts may bring a topic to discuss, but this is primarily an opportunity for college students with disabilities to talk with each other, network, ask questions, learn more about disability, or share resources and information. There is no registration. The Zoom link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85187506939
The GRAD CHAT is continuing on the first and third Thursdays of each month, so our next session is this Thursday - January 1 at 3:00 Central. This is for graduate students and professional students (e.g., students in medical school) who are disabled or studying disability. Like the undergrad group, the host may have a topic, but students can also bring ideas about things they would like to discuss. Past topics have included being a disabled grad student working with committees or advisors, getting accommodations for research and teaching, stigma, and burnout. There is no registration. The Zoom link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89290535107
3:00 Central is 1:00 Pacific/2:00 Mountain/4:00 Eastern.
All meetings have captioning. Meetings are not recorded. For questions, and requesting ASL interpreters or other access needs, contact NCCSD@ahead.org.
