Welcome to the Graduate Student Disability Alliance

Our Mission

Welcome to the Graduate Student Disability Alliance (GSDA), an affinity group for graduate and professional students who are situated within the broad Disability umbrella. This group includes, but is not limited to, Disabled students, neurodivergent students, Deaf/ hard-of-hearing students, blind students, students with chronic illnesses, students with mental health conditions, and other students who receive or would like to receive accommodations. The primary function of the Graduate Student Disability Alliance is to create a sense of community among graduate students with disabilities, advocate for members of our community, foster a sense of belonging on campus, and support our members while they navigate graduate school and beyond.
