Council for Students with Disabilities

Description

Council for Students with Disabilities (CSD) is committed to improving the quality of life on Boston College’s campus for students with disabilities by removing both the physical and social barriers they may encounter. The CSD aims to educate students, faculty, and staff on the lived experience of students with disabilities and change the perception of disability. Furthermore, the CSD works to ensure that the voices, concerns, interests and needs of students with disabilities are heard throughout the Boston College community through discussion, support and advocacy.

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Council for Students with Disabilities (CSD). We are dedicated to bringing awareness to the problems students with disabilities face and building a community for them and their allies. We program events to promote awareness and educate the student body on what it is like living with a disability, including events on anything from albeism and body shaming to the history of the disability rights movement. We also strive to collaborate with other clubs on campus to bring the student body events that highlight identities that intersect with ability, such as race, class and sexuality. We encourage people to come to our general meetings to voice their own stories and provide us with helpful advice on how to make our campus a better environment.
