The Disabled Students’ Section is a collective which aims to represent the views of students’ at UCL who self-define as disabled, including but not limited to students with physical disabilities, long term illnesses, specific learning difficulties and mental health issues.
The Section is chaired by an elected part time volunteer known as the Disabled Students’ Officer.
We hold meetings, events and run campaigns.
The Section is not a service provision for disabled students, that is provided by UCL Student Disability Services.
The Disabled Students’ Officer this year is Grace Jeremy who attends UCLU council meetings and is a direct representative of disabled students. They are supported by union staff and full time officers that help to organise events and campaigns. The section is tasked with making sure that UCL and UCLU are working hard to ensure that all students have access to its activities and services.
You contact Grace by emailing UCLUemail@example.com
There are regular section meetings that take place.
Currently the section is seeking two volunteers to help with planning activities to take place at the start of the academic year 2014/15.
We are always looking for passionate and interested people to get involved; so if you are interested please do get in touch.
Information about activities in the academic year 2014/15 will be updated here August 2014.
