Disability DIScussions - Feedback Form
This year, the Equity and Inclusion Office and MSU Maccess collaborated with each other and various community partners, including Student Accessibility Services, PATH Employment, and the Student Success centre, to create a series of drop-in style sessions/workshops called “Disability DIScusssions” to facilitate networking, connecting, information-sharing and knowledge translation to students who identify with disability/mental health issues/chronic illness/addiction/madness. We had successful turnouts for each session, but are hoping to better our outreach across Faculties at McMaster to better support all students with disabilities at McMaster, and to better capture where we need to grow regarding gaps in accessibility that exist here. We covered in this year’s sessions topics including:
- · UDL/Accessibility in teaching and learning + accommodations processes
- · Accessibility in our eateries (food accessibility)
- · Navigating graduating and graduate school
- · Transitioning from university to employment / gaining employment while in university
We’re hoping to gain feedback from students with disabilities who participated in the sessions and/or didn’t but may intend to participate next year, to better inform future workshops and programming and are asking students with disabilities interested in future participation in this programming to fill-out this feedback form, which will contribute to growing and expanding current session topics, environment/set-up, accessibility and intersectionality.
