The Accessibility Student Union is made up of students with disabilities and able-bodied allies who value the diversity within all of us. They are dedicated to being a support system for students while also educating the wider University of Oregon community about disability culture. They are a support system for students and often hold fun and educational events and activities.
Disability Studies is a cross-disciplinary examination of disability in society. The perspectives of various disciplines, such as architecture, history, law, literature, philosophy and sociology are used to understand the intersection of personal perspective, social identity, and cultural understandings. This occurs in contexts similar to those created in American Studies, Multi-Cultural Studies and Women’s Studies.
