CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS | Accessibility and the Concordia Student Experience
In March 2018, the Concordia Council on Student Life (CCSL) in collaboration with QPIRG Concordia and Centre for Gender Advocacy, began working with and a pair of university researchers in order to carry out a study which aims to identify some major interests and gaps in accessibility and services for students and staff at Concordia.
Led by two student-researchers in the COMS and INDI departments, this research will contribute to a better understanding of:
- Barriers experienced at Concordia in terms of accessibility
- What participants would like to see further addressed in a educational workshop on accessibility in Concordia?
- The more nuanced and less visible elements of accessibility (social, communicational and sensorial) require more attention and open discussion amongst students, staff and the Concordia community.
Are you a Deaf or disabled student who would like to participate in a focus group discussion?
Are you a member of the Concordia community (staff, volunteer, student) who would like to participate in a workshop?
You are invited to contact co-researcher, Aimee Louw at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

This project is the first step of a longer student-engagement initiative. The goal is to increase access for students to extra-curricular and academic activities Please note: We have budgeted for ASL interpretation, we have budgeted for audio description of visual elements of the workshop.
