Petition for a Disability Center on Campus!
Help us in garnering support for a designated space on campus for the disabled community here at UIowa.
Welcome to UISDAA!
UI Students for Disability Advocacy & Awareness (UISDAA, we pronounce the acronym as "YOOSE-duh"), primarily an organization both by and for disabled students and their allies, works to raise critical disability awareness on campus, provide a community and supportive space for students with disabilities, and promote disability justice on campus for the success and safety of disabled students. We do this by providing both disabled students and allies alike with ample opportunities to acquire knowledge about disability, develop their leadership and advocacy skills, and create tangible changes surrounding disability-related issues at the university level.
If you are searching for resources on disability, either to learn more about your own disability or to research for a project, the Director of the Main Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Department, Janalyn Moss, organized a variety of resources on disability available through the UI Libraries.
Head on over to Student Disability Services to apply for accommodations, learn more about campus resources, and receive academic coaching.
University Counseling Services offers individual therapy sessions for students, along with group therapy with specific groups relating to issues such as ADHD and Chronic Health.
