Disability and Access Coalition

Mission Statement

The Disability and Access Coalition is a subcommittee of the CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) Student Association. Our mission is to raise awareness around disability issues, build and maintain a campus that celebrates, advocates for, and ensures inclusiveness, and foster collaboration between students with disabilities and those who are allies. We provide programming and events in an effort to establish a supportive community where folks are empowered and affirmed in their intersectional identities.
